Planted Tank Obsessed

I have a low tech tank and it is heavily planted, and because of that I can have a pretty large bioload. I have 30 red eye tetras, 60 rummy nose, 20 zebra danios, 10 amano shrimps, and a zillion snails all within a 55 gallon. I have no issues with them and everyone is happy; although, I did lose about 10 rummy noses...After some research, I've realized how picky these fishes are. I have a low tech tank and all I do is top off the tank when I can (water is prepped and water is similar in temp) since I have a heavily planted low tech tank. Since my first top off, I've slowly observed the rummy noses. They seem to get stressed when I top off the tank. But it seems through time, they do start to get used to topping off as they get conditioned. But just a fair warning, from my experience.
