Look, a terrible quality picture lol. Discus are done being terrified though so that's good. Thanks to oddball tanks on craigslist this is about 95g (48x18x25). Running a Marineland 350 and a Fluval 307, got a 300w jager heater, and once I get more tubing for the height of this thing I'll be putting my airstones in. Nothing super fancy going on, now I just have to decide what I'm doing for the bottom and find a background.
Also, the discus ate just like normal this morning so I think they're much happier in here.

ALWAYS go for the biggest tank with the most surface area you can afford. I went the upgrade route from a 55 to a 90 to finally a 150 which i should have started with.

lol, I wish my parents agreed with that, they said no more upgrades after this but you know we wouldn't have this problem if I just started with a 150g
