this is something you should forget, having Retroculus.
They come from fast moving water - thus they need fast moving water, and that should be clean. Fast moving water moves over 1 meter a second - or 3,5 feet. That is, 3,6 km an hour, or 2 1/4 mile. I think you better have a filter capacity over 5 times the content of your tank an hour, which tank is supposed to be roomy - the fish can be territorial amongst themselves, and change 1/3 of the water a week
Plants normally don't like such conditions, and therefore you best remouve them before - and the plant gravel - which gives plant fertiliser to the water, put differently, pollutes the water, with them
However, R xinguensis are in my to 5 of all sout american fishes - they are worth it

Best of luck with the Retroculus xinguensis - they're a great fish!
