#175: 1200L Biotope Aquascape Lago Cuipeua Biotope

Nidal Rezek Koridallos, Greece


Another simple and simply beautiful discus biotope. It looks like you've got a couple Heckels in there as well. The fish look to be in good health and have plenty of room to roam. The one thing that bothers me about this aquarium is the terrestrial species sitting underwater. Your fish and the plants will be better off with just the roots submerged.

Beautiful Discus biotope.

A beautiful tank for the discus. I believe from the literature that the LAgo Cuipeia habitat is similar to your representation but the inclusion of leaf litter would make the tank more accurate. Nice tank!
