use a co2 injector as your fish arent sufficeint to supply it themselves. imo thats a pretty nice tank. all it needs is a co2 injector and maybe some plecos?

Little fuzzy but nice plants.

I have a nutrafin ladder and 2 2l bottles of DIY CO2. The CO2 stays steady at 30ppm. As for the plecos, they would tear up my glosso, that's why I have otos.

Very nice start for 2 weeks, can't wait to see how it fills out in a month or two.
