Description of the aquarium:
Category:
South America
Tank size:
101x41x51 = 200 liters ~ 52 gallons (us)
Specific features:
This basin is my first attempt to set up a pool according to the requirements of Biotopaquaristik and operate.

I have tried in good faith the riparian zone recreate a blackwater river / -baches of "Rio Negro" -region and set up my nurslings a semi-natural habitat as possible. For this purpose I have oritentiert especially on underwater photographs from the "Rio Negro" region.

The animals used are found all in the metropolitan area of ​​the "Rio Negro" -region or in Brazil. It is difficult to understand whether the gewähtlen species actually occur in exactly this situation in the wild. One thing is certain, they harmonize beautifully today and it seems all good to go.

About comments and observations on this project, I would be happy, I hope you like it.
