Very nice. It's sad that many species in such seemingly wilderness areas suffer from man's pollution.

I connected my laptop to my flat screen and watched it in full. WOW is all I can say and Thank you for sharing this amazing video work.
I was struck by how much movement and flow the plants experience in the wild and think that I should "up" the water movement in my tank!

Yes, there was quite a bit of water movement wasn't there...

It was a great video. I watched it earlier today as well. You should with the right direction of current according to your selected fish's natural place of origin. I watched videos of most of my fish in their natural habitat to make sure I did my best to recreate it( as much as I wanted to). Especially my fav tank. Their colors are brighter and they are very healthy from best I can tell.

Food for thought: Bear in mind that these were filmed in rivers in the wild. I believe that the pond and tank raised fish we mostly have never lived in waters like these....for generations. This is akin to attempting to match a perceived water chemistry that your fish never lived in.

Really?? Because Byron and others make QUITE a big deal about keeping fish water that is similar to their natural habitat. That's the first thing many people here ask when someone wants stocking help - "we can't help you till you tell us your water chemistry..."

I think it's safe for you to definitively say that the tank raised fish have never lived in wild rivers. Are you suggesting that the fish forget how to swim in such a setting? Or are today's fish just too lazy? Besides, even the likes of my ridiculous, unnecessary, waste of money (did I forget something?) filtration systems don't even come close to a river setting.

Those are very valid points AD and Jaysee. We forget that many fish are just local tank raised fry sometimes or shipped in from some other city on our own continent and not raised in the correct PH water anyway. Does that mean that only the "wild caught" fish at the store should be kept in the correct water PH? Does the fish's genetics dictate the best PH regardless of whether it was born in my city water?
