#158: 230L Biotope Aquascape MomonBlues

Chris Chiras Arta, Greece


I really like this biotope. The sparse floating plants and cloudy water works well with the wood to give a very natural impression. You've also chosen a tank with good dimensions for your angels. Kudos!

While this might be a fairly accurate representation of an angel biotope it's not very attractive. Worse I am concerned by the cloudiness in the water. While tannin stained water would be correct in the small enclosed area of an aquarium I am afraid that this cloudiness is evidence of instability that has caused an algae bloom.

A good representation of an angelfish biotope. The branches and stumps depict the habitat pretty good but the cloudiness of the water is something not seen in the wild. Polish the water and you'll have an accurate and thriving biotope! Good job.
