55gal low tech

Heres my 55 that i set up for about 3 weeks now, it used to be a grow out tank for my malawi cichlids. Substrate i used is floramax, black sand that i topped over my crushed coral substrate. I have two pieces of mopani, and some manzanita branches. What do you guys think? Ideas and suggestions are welcomed.

I have 2 australian rainbows, 1 turquoise rainbow, a bunch of different tetras, and 4 harlequin rasboras, and a dwarf gourami. I was going to make it a discus tank but my ph is too high.

I like it a lot! The driftwood looks like it was a great find.

Since you got a high ph roll with it! Make it a rainbow and rasbora tank. Return the tetras maybe to make it an all asian tank? Idk just a suggestion

The crushed coral will keep your pH high no matter what it is coming out of the tap.
