Additional Information Most of the information about Amazon river i got from this



Then i wanted the fish who will boost the attraction of the biotope what i wants to make,then i decided to add Satanoperca Jurupari Main Fish for this biotope

I also wanted to add some more tank mate which are native to this place and also not harm each other like:
Satanoperca Jurupari
Hyphessobrycon Herbertaxelrodi
Mesonauta Festivus


I Receive this fish when they are just 4cm in size i quarantine them for 20 days,before adding in main tank
Now I have these fish with me from around 3 months

But even after reading what i notice about this fish is that they need some Dark area to hide them selves specially wile sleeping,as well as open area not just in middle or top of tank, I'll say specially open Bottom area of tank with sand where thay search food and also they love to swim in between from Branches of wood

No doubt that they are very peaceful fish but even then some time they want to protect there territory

I always wanted that my fish love the creature what i created for them and they feel like they are in nature

So after understanding there character,this biotope is created,
specially to see them showing nature habitat wile swimming around drift wood digging under sand for food..
I added school of Hyphessobrycon Herbertaxelrodi and i love to see when they go near there school, the neon become more active and run in schooling way

I will be very happy if they breed in this tank
I love if i see them laying eggs as well as show there nature habitat while protecting there fry from other fish

To maintain good water quality I use good mechanical filtration to clean suspended particle and rest of the job done by peat,
Done Weekly (RO water )water change

Feeding 3 Times A Day mix with Worms and pellets specially sinking food that they find food wile digging in sand
