#370: 140L Biotope Aquascape Patrolling a piece of the Rio Almoloya, Mexico

Alden Moran Turiano Lakewood, United States


I like that you took the time to create a biotope in your "time out tank". Were I in your place I'd have a hard time putting that bully back into the larger system. I like this setup very much. The rock placement reflects imbrication and streambed geomorphology well.
