#246: 28L Biotope Aquascape Kakadu forest stream – Northern territory Australia

James Starr-Marshall Finchley, England


General impression is good but the foreground is to much "man-made" to give an actual biotope impression.

Very pretty tank but I think it would be difficult to find this representation of the biotope in the wild.

Additional Information My intent was for this Biotope to house Pseudomugil gertrudae, but unfortunately there were none available in the UK at the time. I therefore had to compromise and stock the closest available species I could find, Pseudomugil furcatus. My other compromise was to include the non-biotopical Neocaridina Heteropoda which were necessary to maintain good plant health in such a small aquarium.
