Biotope description: The aquarium was set up based on the upper Guaporé River region during the start of rains, when small tributaries being filled with water. Leaf litter that covers the sandy bottom is releasing some tannins, and soft water is getting slightly acidic. Plants are using every spot of sunlight, but there are not enough nutrients to let them grow big. Tree roots, some aquatic vegetation and leaves create a good habitat for small fish.
