another low maintenance effort: "Asian River Biotope"
Biotope Aquatics Part 3: Southeast Asia, Vietnam: Tram Chim Melaleuca Forests, Dong Thap Province
Jeremy Gay creates a natural river biotope with all the ingredients from just one country. He explains how in this step-by-step guide. What springs to mind when someone talks about an Asian biotope? Gouramis, rasboras, loaches? Well not any more, as, thanks to exporters, specialist importers and the Internet, we can now be much more specific about our biotopes. You can set up by starting with the fish, instead of the other way round. That way you can select the fish you want, quarantine and condition them and build the biotope around them.
Asian river "biotope" with crazy flow
Some of the plants still need some growing and are recent adds but you get the general idea. I tried to make the tanks as pure as possible but some of the plants were admittedly disputed as to area of origin but hey I've definitely gotten your help more than a couple times. A wipe of the front glass might be a plus before taking photos, though! Squirt the window cleaner onto a paper towel not at the tank!
