Additional Information The idea was originally to create a colorful Dutch/ jungle scape centered around the beautiful wood, however as diatoms and weathering started to hide the wood, I shifted from a fast flowing hillstream jungle tank with danios, panda garras and catfish, to a flooded jungle style- tannin rich tank and later photos show the gouramis and swordtails that were added (and spawned for me!).

I try and make all my tanks fairly low maintenance, and I always want animals and life on the bottom, in the mid layer and the surface, as well as at least having 3 species spawning successfully in a tank. Thank you for your time and consideration.
