#587: 120L Biotope Aquascape Lake Masek, a coast near the village of Sinoni, Tanzania.

Very pretty but these plant in nature are only seasonally inundated. In shallow water like this they would be growing out of the water making shade above. This is vary pretty but bordering on an "aquascape".

Additional info: Change of 25% of the volume of water is made every 10 days. Kenyan frogs feed mainly on invertebrates and do not touch fish as large as Nothobranchius. Seasonal kallifish and Xenopus borealis can be found together, because they both prefer shallow water with soft silty soil and shelters – plants, roots that allow them to hide from birds (herons, kingfishers), which are their natural enemies. In the future we plan to plant other types of Nothobranchius in this aquarium.
