Thanks! The tiger barbs are gone, I replaced them with cherry barbs - a lot less agressive.
I'm gonna post a video of the babies and momma, she's done a costume change - looks totally different from the other female.

Your tank is looking really nice Sundragon. That tiger lotus looks terrific.
And so do the tiger barbs by the way. I have always liked them but since I keep angels it is not to be for me. I am curious why your list for more fish does not include increasing that school.
As for the discus idea, I would have to vote no for this tank. It would completely upset everything that is working just right here; keep the idea for a larger tank. It IS a good idea, just not for this tank.
Keep the pictures coming!

24oz (2lbs) tanks last about ~2 months, but with EI dosing I upped the CO2 from 3bps to 4bps so I'm going to say 1.5 months.

I wanted Discus a while back - Not sure I want test my plants ability to deal with the warmer water (aside from finding homes for the other fish that can't tolerate the warmer temps)
Help me choose one of the below:
Edit: currently the tank's residents include 4 cherry barbs, small school of Pencilfish, small school of cardinals, 2 cory sterbai, 3 otos, 3 apistogramma, and a partridge in a pair tree... /Edit
Any other recommendations? I love schooling fish but I think something personality would be nice.

Tank is still looking GREAT!!!
The Pencil Fish are still my Faves! Glad to hear about the diffuser still going good! I am really thinking of going that route! About how long are the CO2 tanks lasting? Just wondering because my Son has a few of them from his Paint ball days, and I hate to see them just lying there when I could be using them!!!
Anyway keep up the GREAT WORK!

I've been reading the majority of this. In your most recent photos I noticed you have what looks to be a fan/wave mover for water. It seems to do a gentle job, what kind/type?

Just a little update:
The Coral red pencil males are coloring up and sparring. Here's a clip
I started to dose EI and the plants are pearling for the first time since I set up the tank but only on trace day for some reason.

Well, the Serpea tetra are gone - their introduction caused an ich outbreak - None of them showed any symptoms. Luckily, I caught it in the very beginning and wiped it out with Quick Cure. One more treatment and it will be a week of no symptoms.
Here are some pics:

Thanks for the feedback! The CO2 atomizer is working well - It needs a cleaning - GLA sells a product that you can dip it in for a few hours and it opens up the pores.
I am dropping the light from 33" from the substrate to about 24" from the substrate so I can nudge the hair grass into growth. It's a gradual process. I've upped the CO2 and now you can finally see the bubble mist - not a lot but a fine mist. I think a cleaning will reduce the size - I haven't cleaned the diffuser in 8 months.
I just ordered a male Hongsloi - I figured out that the two I have are females and they could use a male to keep them company (and color them up a bit).
The Staurogyne repens has gone into overdrive - I've started to prune it weekly and replant the tips - the midground is going to be that for the most part.
This is the tank with the light 28" from the substrate.
