I have several low tech tanks. I do weekly 50% WC and no issues. With Java fern, you have to pull the babies off. They kill the mother leaf if just left. I have a huge java in my 100 gallon that gets nice CO2 and ferting.
Use the EI method for good results. Do you know how much PAR you have from the light?
Also I saw a demasoni in there, and they will kill your danios. How many labs do you have in there? With yellow labs, you need a nice group not just 2-3. I had a 75 set up with them and I had a about 12 in there. They were always out and about. Demasoni are far more aggressive than YLs. You need more of them than the YLs. Otherwise they will just pick on the YLs. I like the look of the scape though.
Look into the EI method and dose once a week of each fert...KNO3, CSM+B, and K2SO4.
Dose the CSM+B once a week and the other two once a week.
