Volume: 250 L
List of fishes: Pterophyllum scalare
Biotope description: The aquarium was set up based on a biotope of the Pterophyllum scalare in the Oyapock river in French Guiana. The subduded lighting and the lack of vegetation along with long trailing wood and logs and twigs scattered on the base and fine sand and leaf litter complete the decor.

Great balance and natural atmosphere. The driftwood was placed like an arrangement. It would have been better if the driftwood had been arranged more naturally. But I liked so much this layout.
