I finally lost my mind

I finally lost my mind and did it. I jumped right in and did a dirted 75g tank.

It was a lot of work getting it set up but it's so worth it. I am currently on Day seven of the new tank.

After set up I filled the tank it looked great water clear. The second day water was real cloudy and dark. I let that go until day 3. On day three my plant order arrived and I drained the tank and planted it and refilled.

Yesterday on day 6 and water had a haze but not as bad as the first…

Cacatuoides dwarf cichlid and Bolivian Ram ?

I have one pair of Bolivian rams in my 36 gallon planted amazon tank along with some Corey cats and some cherry barbs and I was wondering if I would be able to add a pair of Cacatuoides in the tank. I plan on turning the tank into a high tech heavily planted tank so there will be plenty of cover I also have some small flower pots set up as caves. So, will this work? any advice and feedback is very appreciated.
