Just completed a week of my new setup.

Flow : Small but powerful powerhead

Fish : As of now Amano Shrimps, Green Shrimps, Added 6 otos today
Planning to add 2 SAEs , cory cats, Bushy nosed pleco next week
Final addition not decided. Suggestions welcome. I have 7 big Discus from old

planted tank housed in a bare bottom 2 feet tank. Not very sure how they will look
in this setup. Also there are concerns of high flow rate and increased bioload.
With earlier planted tank I had lot of constraints because of Discus and needless to

say lot of hard work ( Daily water changes)..... but will feel very bad to give them
up...They are extremely friendly and atleast 2 pairs with one pair spawning


Plants : Sagittaria sp. Dwarf, Staurogyne Repens, Hydrocotyle Tripartita "Honda",
Micranthemum "Monte Carlo", Pogostemon Helferi, Echinodorus Tenellus,
Ludwigia Palustris, Hydrocotyle Sibthorpioides, Echinodorus Parviflorus,
Marsilea Hirsuta and Java moss

Hardscpae : Rocks ( forgot names) and driftwood

Fertilization : not begun. Please guide me as to when can I start
