    Tank looks good, glad to hear everything's going good but the smell .

    Ha, yea i had a rough vacation, left the tank for 3-1/2 days... well lost two fish over that time.

    Came back, did a 50% PWC and general clean up.

    Other than that the tank has been great, finally getting a little growth out of my java fern :). The otos and all other fish love the zucchini I keep in there too

    Trying to solve the smell issue though still

    What does it smell like? Could be that's the normal smell of the substrate?

    I feel like its the smell of the driftwood, can't really describe it. If I take the wood out and soak it, the water I soak it in smells. Do tannins smell?

    Yes, they can. I've never found it to be an overwhelming stench, but it's pretty noticeable. Do you only have Malaysian Driftwood in your tank or is Mopani in there, as well?

    Just Malaysian as far as I'm aware, I know its not Mopani.

    My filters are constantly red, I think from some dust still kicked up by substrate , and yes I did wash it I guess just not good enough

    I have been cleaning the filters off in tank water, and have used poly stuffing also to remove some of the discoloration. Has been a major PITA

    The reason I asked, is because I know Mopani leaches tannins constantly. It takes much more to release all of it, than it typically does for Malaysian. That being said, they both have an odor. If you haven't already, you might want to make sure all of the bark is off your wood, as well. That can make a mess in the tank, too.

    There isn't any bark, but some of parts of the end (its a split piece, so some thin parts) are soft, I am removing those as I go along. And going to start a PWC everyday to try to clear up the tank. Makes me very sad that its so cloudy. But fish and the 1 plant are happy.

    Still arguing with myself which light fixture to buy, but I have a few plants in mind that I like, Wisteria, Anubius, and Bacopa are my top 3 right now
