Volume: 150 L
List of fishes: Monodactylus sebae
Biotope description: It is the coast of West Africa, brackish water. Flooded old driftwood is a favorite shelter for young Monodactyluses.

For me this was the 3rd best, simply because it is very authentic to the natural biotope of these endemic Mono scats. Marina really did her homework very well by finding an authentic mangrove-like tree and also the substrate is correct. You definitely deserved my placement in the Africa biotopes.
