#41: 680L Biotope Aquascape Deepest Love

Kemal SAKA Ankara, Turkey


This is a fine tank indeed and I'm happy that your fish liked too and felt inspired... However for biotope aquaria I don't like mixing plants from elsewhere. Thus if Tanganyika is your biotope then select plants from Tanganyika!
— Ole Pedersen
Even thiugh the size of the tank the dsigner was able to fill it pretty well! I still think it can use many more fish. The tank is clean and healthy and this is important when housing such rare species.
— Luis Navarro
Nice tank but not a true biotope tank.
