- 2 Juvenile Chuco Microphthalmus - 2 inches
- 2 Amphilophus Lyonsi - 1 inch and 2.5 inch
- 3 Hysophyrs Nicaraguens - 3.5 inches
- 4 "Cichlasoma" Salvinii - 1.5 inches
- 2 Andinocara Stalsbergi - 4 inches and 1 inch
- 1 baby Cryptoheros Nanoluteus - 1 inch
- 3 Busy Nose Plecos
- 10 Columbian Tetras (look cool now but won't last...i know)

Equipment:
- 4X54 Watt 48inch T5HO Aquticlife suspended above tank

Did a major change up on the plants and went higher on my light. Added two LED Fixtures and moved to Dry Ferts given the new plant selection. Gone are all the swords and Anubias. All were replaced with various stem plants.

Fish remain the same with the addition of 3 Apistogramma Panduro, 1 Apistogramma Honsgloi, 3 Farlowella cats, and 5 American Flag fish for Algae.

Livestock:
- 2 Rio Nanay Angelfish
- 3 Manacapuru Angelfish
- 3 Festivums
- 6 Blue Rams
- 3 Bolivian Rams
- 3 Apistogramma Panduro
- 1 Apistogramma Honsloi
- 3 Laetacara Curviceps
- 4 Crenicichla Regani (3F/ 1M)
- 4 Crenicichla Compressiceps
- 9 HY511 Tetras
- 10 Otocinclus
- 3 Farlowella Cats
- 4 Nerite Snails.
- 6 Amano Shrimp
- 5 American Flag Fish

Plants:
- Rotala Indica "COlorata"
- Rotala "Green"
- Ludwigia Repens
- Ludwigia Cuba
- Limnophilla Aromatica "Hippuroides"
- Pogostemon Stellatus
- Staurygone Repens
- Blyxa Japonica
- Heteranthera Zosterifolia
- Susnset Hygro
- Hygro Angustifolia
- Anubias Nana Petite
- Narrow Leaf Java Fern
- Bacopa "Japan"

Dosing is done EI, Water Temps at 81F, and Substrate being PFS with Laterite underneath. Lights are on 10.5 hours daily with CO2 running 24/7.

Here are some pics. Again, sorry for the bad photo quality.

Hey Guys,

Here are some updated shots. Fish have grown and the stock has been thinned out with the Lyonsi's removed, 3 Salvini taken out, and got rid of the Regani.

Inhabitants are:
- Trio Nicaraguense: 2F/1M
- Parachromis Loisellei male
- Grammodes Male
- Vieja Synspilum
- Paraneetroplous Bifasciatum
- 2 Chuco Micropthalmus
- 1 Female Salvini

Plants are all Hornwort.

Wood is a mixture of Manzanita and locally sourced wood from the streams in PA.

Gravel is a mix of PFS, Caribsea African Cichlid Gravel, Pea Gravel in Natural Tone.

All rock is from the local Garden Center.

Feedback is appreciated.

Hey Guys,

Here's my last tank. Its a 90 gallon lighly planted LOW TECH tank with a few rare fish. All fish are juveniles except for the livebearers.

Livestock:
- 7 Thorichthys Maculippinis
- 2 Cryptoheros Nanoluteus
- 6 Xenoteca Eiseni
- 11 Melanotaenia Parva (9 F/ 2 M)


I'm selling those Parva as soon as someone is interested and will replace them with some wild swords down the line. Let me know if you're interested.
