DISQUALIFIED

Aponogeton in the back right spoils this as a biotope. Lava rock is also not appropriate. Not a biotope.

Karen Randall

Good effort. Next time, make sure to do more research into where your plants and fish come from. The Micanthremum 'Monte Carlo' is an Argentinian species, and that's not a Nymphaea; rather an Aponogeton in the back. Neither species would be found in the Rio Maues.
