Welcome to TPT!
You have done an excellent job on your first tank. I wish I could say my first tank looked half that good.

180 g. low tech w/ wild South American cichlids, corydoras eques, and African Congo riverine tetras.
60 g. low tech w/ F1 Alenquer pair /Stendker "Tefe" discus and wild Altum Angels
30 g. low tech w/ Wild Tucano tetras
30 g. low-tech African Biotope

Hi and welcome! Your first tank looks amazing. Looks like you have an eye for this kind of stuff. Know what you're gonna end up stocking in there? or just plants?
