Hi all,

This is my first post on this forum. I had registration issues that Jason solved, many thamks

I have been keeping discus and angelfish for nearly a year in a four foot planted tank. The fish grew well, and there was a lot of agression. No pecking order in paricular, just general violance. So I broke this tank down

and moved them to a 6 x 2 x 2 CADE.

The tank is heavily planted , with more than 10 species of plants. The front half is a swimming area with white river sand as a substrate.

Filtration:

Sump.
Water is drained from the tank via
1. A PVC overflow
2. PVC suction

Most of the water is drained via the suction, and a small amount trickle down the overflow. I want to minimise CO2 degassing, while getting some form of surface skim.
