#301: 15L Biotope Aquascape Small quilt stream in Baiyun mountain, Guangdong province china

谭杰 重庆, China


This biotope has a soft spot in my heart because it is one of the very first biotope tanks I ever did personally. However it is my understanding that these fish come from areas of running water and while all the"pieces" are right in your tank the "depiction" is more of a quiet pond. This comes from lack of directionality of your materials and also the us of the extreme wide angle lens. That said your tank still brings a smile to my face!

is almost no aqua plants but alge. Trees and grasses are dense around the water,so the sunlight is very poor in the water,on the bottom of the water,there lie some fallen leaves and braches form the trees around. And lots of litlle snails scatter shut in the water. And on the bottom there are alot of river stones and pebbles, river sand in light color.
