Additional Information This biotope was my attempt to recreate a shallow flooded forest of a Igarape nearby the Rio Negro, Brazil. I used a variety of leaf colors to resemble the fallen leaves of the forest. I also used a dimmed light to stimulate the dimmed lighting of the shaded river.
I would have preferred using paracheirodon axelrodi in this tank rather than paracheirodon innesi, but I felt as though my tank was a bit small for them.
