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

I underexposed the shot to enhance the murky, blackwater look.

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?
