Thats great. It seems weird not to see lots of lush plant growth in one of your tanks! What size tank is that? Are the large flat bits leaves? They almost look like smooth tree bark.

The gouramis look nice and healthy George. Bet it's nice to have at least one tank that doesn't need all the dosing and trimming eh?! :lol:

Thanks everyone.

The decor is plays sand, Sumatra wood from Unipac, Indian almond leaves from AE and bits of old bogwood etc. from Jeremy.

Temp is 28C. pH<6.

Plants are Salvinia natans.

Virtually zero maintenance. I just top up with RO and feed fish. The floaters deal with nutrient build-up. I remove a handful every week.

Interesting tank George, must be a nice change for planty tanks?

I've just set up a hillstream loach tank, get something a bit more unusual.

Yes, I like biotopes. Nearly as much as well-aquascaped planted.

And some folk still think I don't care about the fish... :D

George this i a beautiful biotope tank. Recently i've really got into biotope tanks, I have a tank that looks similar to this set up for Apistos, I got a pair of wild A. Iniridae, unfortunatly i lost them to infection soon after acquiring them.

Do you plan any other biotope setups?
