Just as a side note, Darth Scohin, your tank is quite similar to mine. I have a Senegal Bichir, a Featherfin Synondontis, and Leopard Ctenopoma on the way. I work at a pet shop and the Leopards I ordered for myself are TINY! So, they are chilling out by themselves at the shop until they get big enough for my tank.

Whenever I start thinking how awesome a chunk of the Orinoco drainage would look in my livingroom, I just imagine the mucky fluff seen in the above biotope and ask myself, "Self, how in the world could you siphon that?" Then I wonder about the dissolved organic solid content and remember the sawdust hell that was my panaque experience. I have to ask, "How do you do it?" And. really, what does three hours of maintaining a beautiful biotope like that, complete with leaf litter and dust, look like? How do you separate the poo from the dust, sand and leaf fragments? Why don't your fish jump out of those open tops? It never adds up in my mind and I give up before I start.
I have a Peru Oscar and a handful of big raphaels that I think would be a good start, but the mess scares me.
Well here's my attempt at a biotope, not nearly as detailed as some though. Excuse the equipment
There's not much tannins on this recent picture since I only dose it with alder cones every first week of the month and this was taken at the last week of June... I would dress it up more for a contest of course but I'm not sure how accurate mine is hahaha
