I am getting a pair of A.cacatuoides thursday.
I am planning on making the tank a biotope.
So far I know Apisto. cacatuoides is from the Amazon, so that is the biotope I am planning
Cockatoo Apisto (Apistogramma cacatuoides) - Seriously Fish
Size- 20 gallon
Decor- Driftwood, petrified wood, rocks
Plants- Amazon sword & Amazon frogbit
Fish- pair of A.cacautoides, maybe a shoal of small tetras?
What kind of leaves should be added to the bottom of the tank to add tannins?
I have many ficus leaves but was worried about the sap.
I can collect maple, magnolia and oak leaves but how do you make sure they are safe?
