Biotope description: Koppiwater stream on Sri Lanka is a biotope surrounded by the tropical forests, which determines its underwater landscape. Located in a mountainous area, the stream has uneven rocky and sandy bottom covered with fallen leaves and sometimes with algae. Submerged tree roots are a favorite habitat for small barbs. Closer to the surface the water is inhabited by zebrafishes. Along the banks of the stream Cryptocorynes grow, forming a continuous carpet.

Nice habitat, not precisely to the mentioned biotope and also with wrong fish species (except for P. titteya), that is why my placement further down. (But like you also are only fractions of points away from the others, less than 1 point).
