Biotope description: The biotope aquarium was set up based on a gulf of Lake Tanganyika in Congo. This rocky area often addresses the nutritional needs of fish in shallow water with mossy rocks. In some parts of the shell, which was built for the storage location of juvenile fish.
Another example of very good arrangement of rocks, this time covered with a little bit of natural looking dirt – mud and algae. And, again, good way of making the photo, with the back wall almost not visible. The bottom could be made of sand instead of white gravel, and sides of the tank should be cleaned from algae – but these flaws don’t influence my opinion that this is one of the best tanks in this edition of the contest. Mostly because of the natural looking hardscape.
Very good hardscape, but I really don’t like the dirt in the lateral glasses and the equipment inside the tank. Just some details that probably would result in more points.
