Biotope description: The aquarium was set up based on Rio Guarumo – Panama, the biotope consists of slow flowing waters, lacking in vegetation, the fish inhabits the lower parts of the river which is usually covered with rocks and leaf litter.
This was my 4th place, together with Rio Hondo (see below). Although it has been decorated very well and has correct fishes, the plants are not, e.g. E. subocellatus, Cabomba aquatica are not found there (as already Alexey pointed out).
It is biotope correct, but in its description the author mentioned six species of plants, which I did not see in the photos. Therefore, according to my estimation this entry was not included to the top three, though it took the 2nd place.
