Here's a lil' update. I added 4 more otocinclus, bringing up the total to 7. Fortunately, no deaths so far, so I'm happy! The only thing I'm upset about is that the water has suddenly turned rather cloudy with a light green tone. I'm thinking it might be green water algae O_o. Not sure what to do, I've read it doesn't harm the fish but I don't like how it looks. Anyways, here's a picture. I finally got rid of the cave ornament thing, and added dwarf hairgrass (eleocharis parvula). I think it will fill in nicely in front of the wood :D
sorry for the bad quality of the image >_<
The two sword plants finally stopped shedding leaves, and the leaves are steadily becoming more sword shaped instead of being circular. I also recently added duckweed, which has had crazy growth! It already covers about 75% of the top, and needs to be cleared a bit already. All other plants have had modest growth, but look healthy to me.
Just as a note, the above image only shows part of the top of the aquarium.
