Biotope description: Borneo, the world’s third largest island, accounts for just 1% of the world’s land yet holds approximately 6% of global biodiversity in its rich, tropical forests. The Heart of Borneo refers to the main part of the island where forests remain intact. The region provides habitat to 10 endemic species of primate, more than 350 birds, 150 reptiles and amphibians and 10,000 plants. From 2007 to 2010 a total of 123 new species have been recorded in the region. The aquarium I made shows swamp located in the Heart of Borneo.

Very nice, rich 3D-structured composition, providing the fishes with lots and lots nooks and crannies to explore. I also like that the water is so clear, even though it is stained with tannins and humic acids. Very interesting and complex layout!
