Cardinal Tetras!
I seem to do better with cardinals rather than neons. I do use aquarium salt, is that different from you list of chemicals? Here's a Vote.

Hey there
Nice looking setups! Always a challenge to keep both plants and fish happy in one tank, at least for me anyway. Good luck and enjoy. Heres a vote!

A couple updates
Added in two convicts earlier this week, hopefully they'll be OK with the plants. I got a big batch of juvies from a fish club buddy and have been raising them for a few months. I think they are both males but I'm not sure. As long as they are the same sex I'm happy.

I decided today to bag the HOB filter and go just with the canister. The canister is more than enough filtration and when I made that same change in my 46 the plants took off immediately, so I'm trying it here. I'm using a DIY CO2 diffuser made out of a piece of chopstick. Google it up - they are awesome!

Update
Not much new to report. I have six more neons in quarrantine that will be joining the crew in a few more days. They were petsmart replacements for early deaths. Normally I don't buy their fish, but neons and cardinals for $1 a piece with a 14 day live guarantee is hard to beat! These six are the remainders of 10 cardinals, 6 died within the first 48 hours. And those were in a QT tank with 20 neons that had no deaths at all. The store was out of cardinals so we swapped them for neons.

I have the worst luck with cardinals - if anyone has any great advice let me know. I know all of the smaller tetras tend to have a high mortality rate, but I always seem to lose 50 - 75% of my cardinals in the first couple of weeks in tanks that are very healthy and stable.

Update
This tank is located in my home office, where I work full time. I'm frustrated with the plants, but I think I picked the wrong fish. The angels just continually pick at just about everything and won't let it ever grow robustly. Couple that with the loaches and I'm about to move all of the plants to another planted tank and redecorate somehow.
