    In the video I was feeding egg yolk, they REALLY enjoy it. It takes around an hour to clear up running two large canisters.

    well, they look great, so it must be working, I imagine the egg yolk is just an intermittent treat food, the plecos also look happy with the veggies!.

    Lemon tetras are a bit under rated if you ask me, once they settle in and get used to their surroundings and diet that yellow will pop out! They do school tightly when i had my 2 dozen just my experiences and from looking at yours the same as well.Doesn't take a lot to make them happy, and will breed for anyone.Nice looking setup by the way, thanks for sharing your photos!
