The 17th place in the qualifying stage of the Biotope Aquarium Design Contest 2013

india India. Achintya Shankar Adhikari

Volume: 243 L
List of fishes: Paracheirodon axelrodi, Apistogramma trifasciata, Corydoras panda
Biotope description: The aquarium was set up based on South American Blackwater biotope. Slowly flowing among the rainforest, with lots of driftwoods and broken leaves which can make tea color water.

The decoration of this biotope was quite authentic, but I gave it much less points why the fish community is wrong (no A. trifasciata lives in the Rio Negro no C. panda either – extreme far away and both live in complete different waters. And definitely the description of the biotope ‘Black Heaven’ is not good be more precise – biotope correct.

One of my favourite tanks in this contest. Dark, clear, elegant. And very spacious.
