This biotope was developed from the study of P. innesi. The focus would be P.innesi, but the enchantment with the other species of the Ucayali River was instantaneous. It took me quite a while to find accurate information and I got through a friend (John Edward). I understood in this study that for a faithful reproduction of a biotope it is necessary to have the local species. I broke this paradigm of my mind.
Biotope reproduced with the similar physical chemical characteristics of the water of the Ucayali River:
- Slightly acidic water (pH - 6.4) - Soil covered with dry leaves with physical characteristics equal to the local and trunks that release their tannins and humic acids, leaving the water color moderately brown.
- Temperature of 26 ° C
- Soft water (kH - 1)
- Soil of light and fine sand but covered with sticks, dry leaves.
