#138: 450L Biotope Aquascape Amber River

Konstandaras Panagiotis Alexandroupolis, Greece


Is that your reflection we see in the back? I hope you're smiling for the camera. You've created a very nice habitat for all of the species in your aquarium. The floating plants leaves wood and stained water make a natural impression. Next time you photograph your tank for a competition please physically remove the hardware rather than using a photo editor to try to obscure it.

Lovely representation of an Amazon blackwater area. Nicely done.

Excellent representation of a Amazon biotope. The colors of the cardinals are striking and it is obvious that the Angel fish love this environment. The tanins and driftwood add a sense of accuracy to the biotope.
