Long overdue post here..
But the tank is now running for 4 years and I’m on the path of going low nutrient.

I finally managed to get the nitrate steady below 20 with 25% waterchange and phosphate below 1.
Still dosing micro nutrients (tenso) but those are at 50% of the estimative index dosing 🙂
Geophagus winermelerie are gone and there are 8 mikrogeophagus altispinosa that took their place

That's amazing. Low tech especially on a big tank has a very specific appeal. It's the beauty in the balance of nature, without the tubes, wires, the salts. The fish get the settle in without soaking in co2 all day.

Look at those angels, huge. The water must be clean.

This is inspirational.

Well..
I use co2 but that is only at 20ppm so not that high.
Other than that it is not all that high-tech

Those wild manacapuru angel are truly stunning, I still have 8 of the 6 years old 1st generation that I raised in my tank, look the same but no red back because I am not be able to create a heavily tanning strained water as in their natural environment, and there is no enough red pigment in their food.

They aren’t wild, I think they are 3rd or 4th generation from wild.
But thanks for the compliment 😉

But mine are pure bred, and my water is crystal clear.
Also I don’t feed with pigments or anything
