#344: 96L Biotope Aquascape Lower Atabapo River. Shallow Water Forest Base. Venezuela

arif hikmet başeğmez merkez, Turkey


This is a reasonably accurate representation of the biotope and I understand the use of the small number of animals because you used such a small tank. But since both hatchet fish and cardinals are both more comfortable in much larger groups AND would not be found in such small groups in the wild I had to mark the tank down for that. They cannot possibly display close to natural behavior in small numbers in this small space.
