1. nice tigers.
2. good tank size too.
3. however, the substrate is definitely some trap for leftovers and waste.
4. what is your wc regime like, bro?

I do vacuum the substrate during every water change, removing the big solid wastes as much as I can.
I notice my water is getting a bit acidic.

On another note, my two parrots, one can be seen in this pic :



Its been like a week since they are in the tank, and they keep hiding. They do get out, but as soon as someone comes near, they disappear in hiding. Thing is that when I give food, they do not come and eat, they others end up eating everything. They used to come out and eat when they were each one in their smaller tank. Hope they get used to this one...

Is there bullying in the tank?

No, didnt notice that at all. I can see them get out of hiding if I'm far from the tank. Maybe I should get an automatic feeder, but I like to feed them when I myself.
Or maybe get some sinking food until they get out of their shyness.
