So. In the coming months I plan on setting up two biotopes.
The first is going to be a tank for myself. It's going to be a South-east Asian biotope. I plan to have Dario Hysginon once again and some other nano SE Asian fish, but thats a planned tank I'm pretty sure I know what I want to do.
The second tank is up in the air. It's a tank that I want to put together for my Grandmother who is a veteran fishkeeper and the reason I got into the hobby.
When I was a kid she had two oscars and a pleco in a large tank for years. They were there before I was born and she had them until i was a teenage.
But those are large fish. To large for me I enjoy much smaller fish in a tank. So... here's are the ideas.
A South American Biotope, I wanna go big. A 75g tank would be what I am hoping for:
Two Bolivian rams or two other cichlids of the Apistogramma type.
A school of pencilfish.
A school of hatchetfish.
A school of Corydoras, not albino but a smaller species at some point i had a small school of Salt and Pepper Cory, I would very much like to do that again.
The second type that I am thinking about is an African Biotope, not Lake Malawi Cichlids. I was thinking African Butterfly fish and African Leaf fish.
So. What I'm asking is for pictures of you Biotopes, and some discussions on choices that I could put together for in a few months.
