Opinions needed on 260 litre tank


Here's my flival Vicenza 260.

2 * 39w T5 lighting
2 * 54w T5 lighting
Producing 3.2 watts per gallon.

Fluval 305 external filter
DD co2 system
In line co2 diffuser running at 2 bubbles per second
Vecton 300 uv
Hydor koralia 900 circulation pump

Tropica plant growth specialised once a week (on water change)

Weekly 20% water changes and gravel Hoover

6 angels varying sizes
2 clown loaches
5 danios
2 gourami
2 rams
1 rainbow shark

Here's some pictures:

Planned upgrades:

Either fluval g6 external filter or a ehiem professional 3 to cope better with the bio load.

Refillable co2 cylinder (fire extinguisher or a 2kg bottle)

A second circulation pump

Any ideas what I could do to make the tank better?
