Biotope description: The aquarium was set up based on a small body of water biotope in the marshes of Everglades. Everglades is in the southern part of Florida. 1947 the USA government organized Everglades National Park. The main natural areas of Everglades: tropical forests in the north, the mangroves along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and the marshes, covered with prickly Caladium.

This was also a very nice biotope and almost corrects according to a small part of the Everglades, only Echinodorus tenellus nor Ludwigia arcuata (and hardly L. palustris) grow that far north (unless introduced).
