Biotope description: Natural habitat of Lake Tanganyika

Simple and beautiful. Just like the German Architect, Mr. Mies Van Der Rohe, said: Less is more. Perfect interpretation. Just one detail. I think that the rock don’t need to be so rounded.

André Longarço (Brazil)

The coating of green algae adds much to the realism of this Tanganyika biotope. So too does the arrangement and selection of stones such that they are closely matched in shape and color, do not form unnatural piles, and have smaller stones resting at the base of larger ones. The inhabitants look right at home and are not overcrowded.
