Volume: 240 L
List of fishes: Uaru amphiacanthoides, Hemigrammus bleheri, Ancistrus sp.
Biotope description: The aquarium was set up based on Rio Negro biotope, Brazil, Anavilhanas Archipelago, 100 km to the north of Manaus. Slowly flowing among the rainforest, this wide river has no aquatic vegetation due to the lack of light determined by the blackwater.

This entry can be called an episode of the life of uaru, guarding their fry. Alder cones and oak leaves on the bottom are excessive, but I like a piece of the cichlid family life.

Monochromatic brown darkness filled with tree branches. This is Uaru land! This is exactly what I expect to see in their habitat.
