    If you keep the bioload light, filtration strong, and use heavy feeding companion plants it should be doable.
    Yeah I think a 50 gallon with 20 cardinals and some bee shrimps and some good feeders plants and filtration would do it.
    Check this beauty! Insane!

    A willow branch will suck up any nutrients very quickly when they are produced, I think a black water set up would work best with very soft water and lots of tannins.

    Wow! That tank is gorgeous! That stocking idea could work. Depending on how the water returns you could probably grow Nepenthes mirabilis or belii in there, along with a few small orchids.

    Most CPs in North America are found along blackwater sources. Most of the water in these streams or ponds looks like really dark tea.
