Thank you for nice words. However I see that my pictures are quite cut. The reason can be that I used a BBCode from other fish forum (from Poland), so do you have your own gallery to load pictures and use bbcode? I would like to show the whole tank and whole fish not a half :) . Also is this possible on this forum to add a movie or only links to are possible?

There's a width restriction I believe of 800 pixels. Alternatively, you can attach the photos to the post so that they'll never be lost.

Some update of my sanmerah story in pictures;) There is pair with aggs. It is a first time for them, so I have no doubt, there will be nothing this time, but that's good they started.

The photos of your Discus are magnificent. It looks as though the tank is ideally suited to their needs. Very impressive.

Very beautiful tank and the san merahs are stunning.
But a note for you, wild brown discus/brown base discus(like san merah) are a clearwater species and are not found in the Rio Negro.Also the latin name for brown discus is Symphysodon haraldi,while symphysodon aequifasciatus is green discus.

Thank you for your nice comment Kunal Sharma. About brown localization I knew it and that is why there is "almost" in title. Thank you for latin name correction ;). Now in that tank there are only H.psittacus. However in other tank I have just started with 8xHeckel WF Rio Negro, So I believe I will became Rio Negro tank soon.
