Biotope description: The aquarium was set up based on a biotope of middle reaches of the Ussuri River. At this point, the river flows through the Ussuri taiga. The flow is calm, however, during the typhoons that come almost every year in the beginning of August, the water level rises to 5.2 meters and the river turns into a wild stream bearing trunks of huge trees that grow along the banks of the Ussuri River and its tributaries.

My vote is exactly the same as that of others, which will say that the position of Vyacheslav’s is accepted by all, although it is for sure biotope correct. I can see that you did all you could and made a nearly perfect replica of that part of the Ussuri River with the fishes living in it. But if it helps: you are only 3 points and fractions away from the 1st placed in Eurasia (this is how close most of you all were).
