Electric Blue Acaras & Bristlenose Plecos — 55 gal. Growout

Just did a water change and dumped in a bunch of BBS. This tank was African Cichlids until recently. Now it’s housing 250+ EBAs and 50+ BNPs.

Measured parameters for BAP submission yesterday. Nitrates were unbelievably high. I’m changing water more frequently now. What’s everyone’s go-to plants for fastest nitrate uptake? I’ve got Pothos growing out of the HOBs and Java fern + Java moss growing in the tank. Are stem plants better / faster in your experience?

In my tanks, elodea and frogbit gobbled nitrates up like there was no tomorrow. Especially elodea. It grew incredibly fast and in couple of days its new growth would turn white/transparent because of nitrogen deficiency.
