This aquarium has a prominent place in our living room and gives an 'impression' of a well-planted amazon river area with as main focus a school of gold-yellow angelfish.
The aquarium is designed to best approach the natural conditions and the habitat - namely the Amazon area - of the angelfish.
I am however a great lover of well-planted aquariums (and also in favor of their contribution to obtaining a natural, stable underwater world) - that is why I use many more plants than you would typically find in an amazon biotope - the number of plants is often much more limited or even just only wood is present - that's why I prefer to call it an 'impression' (rather then a biotope).
The fish stock also includes a school Corydoras Sterbai and a school Cardinal Tetra's.
We strive for the following water values:
The dimensions are 120 cm wide x 60 cm height x 55 cm depth.
The aquarium is filtered through an external EHEIM filter and uses a CO2 installation for feeding the plants and keeping the water slightly acidic.
The back wall is self-made and conceals the used equipment.
