Awards and Comments


This display is ultimately let down by the inclusion of what appears to be a commercially produced Betta rather than a wild-form specimen.

There has been a good attempt to create an impression of a wild habitat although these fish are likely to be found in swampy shallow habitats where the plant Vallisneria is rarely if ever encountered.

In biotope aquaria you need to pinpoint a specific stream lake or area. "Asian Biotope" is too broad of a region to be judged correctly.
I love the name "Rain" your Betta is very lucky ;)
