60 Gallon Tank Newbie

Fishwood

Hello all fish keepers
I myself am not new to fish keeping but I'm looking to upgrade. I'm looking to go from 35 gallon (18 years old).to a 60 gallon planted tank to take a shot at discus. Current tank is a community version. 4 green tiger barbs,4 black neon tetras,3 Cory's,2 clown plecos and 2 black phantom tetras.one of my biggest issues at the moment is selecting the tank itself ????..any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks all

I'm happy with this one if you can catch a sale (Don't pay over $200). Or piece a set together. I replaced the light right away but the rest is great.

Not to get off subject but I'm a newbie, can you keep tiger barbs with tetras? I was told tiger barbs are aggressive at the pet store so I couldn't get them if I wanted a peaceful community same with angel fish I really wanted them but same thing too aggressive if i want a peaceful community?

Welcome Fishwood! I like your tank!! Can't help with the Discus I'm afraid, but there are others on the forum that can!

Welcome to you too Fluidmotion1987. I think that if you start a thread of your own, we can welcome you officially and also answer the question you asked. I don't want to hijack Fishwood's thread.

Welcome to fishlore! Ask a lot of questions!! Discus are great fish but do need extra care. The marineland tank is fine but the rest are not. Stand is shaky and the light basic. Buy the tank build your stand buy a vivagrow 24/7 led. 6 discus for a 60.

Love the feedback and thanks to all
My main focus right now is on a new tank.not sure on brand. Big pet store chains seem to have just as many 1 reviews as 5 . I'm a review nut .my Cory's wanted me to ask the community.
Thanks again
