How are the levelers holding up? That was my concern in the beginning.

Well the tank is still level so I think I'm all good. The feet were rated for 300 Lbs each giving me a 1,200 Lb limit total. With around 400 Lbs on them I think I should be good. I have not tried to adjust them with all the weight on it but I don't think I will have to.

As of last night

Ammonia: 0ppm
Nitrite: 0ppm
Nitrate: 5ppm
GH: 5
KH:2

I think it's finally time to add some inhabitants!

I want to do some OTO's and Amano Shrimp but I'm concerned as I really don't see much algae to speak of. I can see a bit of a whitish algae on the glass but none anywhere else.

How many of each would you think is prudent? I've read 1 amano per gal (this seems like an awful lot) and 1 oto per 5 gal. Think this is realistic? I don't want them to starve.

Not sure when to add some fish. I was thinking of doing around 20 cardinals but not sure when.

Otos and amanos are added at end of week one, fish after week four.

Excellent setup.

I like the hardscape a lot, although I would have recommended a few smaller stones (Soeishi and Suteishi) to compliment the larger set stones (Oyaishi and Fukuishi).

Plant selection is very good, although I feel that with the extra stones you may have helped absorb the overly "GREEN" and texture of the scape. Needs to have some kind of break between the very defined color and nature of the stone to the very green fine leaved plants you have used.

An excellent overall project and I look forward to seeing it mature. Good luck with it.

But I have no visible algae yet so I'm wondering if that many shrimp and Oto's are even necessary.

I guess I'm a little shocked. The last time I set up a tank my algae problem was really bad. Now I'm afraid to put in Oto's and Amanos because I'm afraid they would starve!

Thanks for the advice. This is only my second scape so I think I have a lot to learn still.

Wasn't meant as negative, only constructive. For your second time, you did a fantastic job.
