If you've got a known pair of Festivum (assumed because you mentioned spawning, and it would explain the aggression), why not remove the others?

I'd also suggest some taller plants that will fill...

After a long accumulation like this there's definitely nothing wrong with lightly vacuuming the gravel; good call. And 10% is just a reference point.

Don't panic on the Nitrates, they will come...

Don't do this. Shrimp or other invertebrates will never survive in this aquarium if you do. Copper will leach from silicone for years.

You might search for "zoo med ultra sun 10 watt". I used to run something similar in that tank, years ago. However, reading reviews, it seems like these don't last very long...

I might try a few at a time. I snipped a few leaves from a couple of wendtii this summer and they had a total meltdown. Spiralis might take it better.

Thanks!

Ditto. It's nice to see C. spiralis in a tall tank. In my 14", it goes up to the surface, out towards the front glass, and then curves down again, halfway to the substrate in the front. :p I'd say...

Can't go wrong with ADA Aquasoil (Amazonia), IMO. :) I see it as the easy version of a dirted tank. The only downside is that it takes a long time to cycle, and depending on the shrimp (neocaridina...

Keep up the WCs and don't worry about dosing. Under a single T8 (very low light), you'll never need to dose fertilizers IMO.

To Kathyy's point about nitrate, WCs will help bring it down while...

It would be cool if you can find a couple large but small-footprint rocks to bring the top of root ball up about 2/3 the way, and then fill water about 1/2, so you have an island...

Frameless, meaning no AIO partition in the back? Or is there another frame somewhere I don't see?

I've had a small nano cube and used a turkey baster to clean - is this much different?

Thanks...

If you want to increase TDS/GH/kH, then yes top off with remineralized water. But it will keep going up. As long as kH doesn't drop below 2 I haven't seen molt issues.
