#202: 260L Biotope Aquascape Amazone biotope

Rick van Sluijs Vlissingen, Netherlands


The plant selection is inappropriate for an Amazon biotope. Consider researching plant species further and what constitutes a biotope aquarium. The AGA guidelines have some good information. http://showcase.aquatic-gardeners.org/2008.cgi?&op=showpage&name=guidelines-biotope

This is nice community Discus tank but it is not a biotope tank. If it weren't for the Cryptocoryne The fish are more or less appropriate together but the plants are not. I suppose we could call it a "geographical theme tank" but since they are from Asia and hte rest of the plants and fish are new world species we can't even do that.

I do not think bamboo grows well in underwater. I believe creator tried to make an image of Amazon but the bamboo looks unnatural. The layout looks chaotic and more layout arrangement is necessary here.
