Really contemplating the jungle aquascapes! Do you guys think I should stuff my tank with plants or leave it as is.

New fish. I got 2 pairs from Finatics. They both paired off in opposite sides of the tank - both pairs digging in substrate. Photo showing 2 males when they occasionally meet in the middle.

Also got 11 Rummy nose. Still looking to add some cardinals among other small fish.

Tank temperature has been kept at 33*C/91*F recently to try to get rid of white poop Wild Angelfish have.

Plants: added Needle Java Fern, bought by accident. Still looking for Trident java Fern

Really like the look of this tank. Makes me want to start a lower tech tank with ferns and anubias. The maintenance required on my current 200 gallon can be very time consuming. However, I would really like to get some dantum angels and german blue rams for the 200. But im concerned that the CO2 I inject and the EI dosing would negatively affect these fish. Since they are significantly more expensive than the neons I have right now, Im a little hesistant. Since you've had experience with both these fish, do you think I would have any problems keeping these fish ?

Cool

Maintenance was a big concern since I wanted this tank to be sustainable long term.

So for rams and dantum angels, you'll be fine even with your current set. Drop the co2 down to green/dark green level and adjust lighting as needed. I don't see you having a problem with them, just don't gas your fish. Make sure to have a dual stage regulator to control co2 precisely.

For Dantum Angels, WC once a week is fine.

Finatics has dantum angels right now ($25/ea to $35/ea depending on size), was really tempted to pick them up more but too broke. Highly suggest you pick them up while they're still there.

THey have good rams right now too. Approximately 10 rams have died on me previously, I think temp too low or bad stock. They're my favourite fish so decided to try again and again. The new ones are pairing off which never happened previously. Maybe it's because I have the temperature high or just good stock.

The Anubuias in the tank was showing nitrogen deficiencies with yellow leaves. I tested for No3, it was at 0. So I started dosing No3.

Regarding low tech, it was actually

Angelfish haven't been healthy during last few months. Not sure what happened. Been doing heat treatment, temp is at 33*C. Three out of five angels have rebounded, gaining weight fast. Subtle colors coming back too. Check out the green/blue.

I like the tank the way it is. Just let what you have fill in. Just my $0.02. Plus once it fills in you can assess better.
