Hi guys and girls, Here is a journey for me into the world of biotopes. It is no way near finished however will continually update on a weekly basis until perfection is reached. I went for the bigger wood, but there is not much information on the Rio Tapajos where the Geophagus Tapajos is kept, more so where the apistos and in the drainage systems themself. I have also opted for finer melaleuca too. Whole idea is to have a natural setting with some nice intriguing bits of driftwood with lots of curves and bends like shown, with the nice sand which would be what is seen in the Rio Tapajos, and no plants, some stones as stones are often found in the bottom of the Rio Tapajos of all sizes, shapes and also sharpness, indian almond leaves for more feature, slight tannin, good ph, kh, gh and good quality fish. My set up will be upgraded in a few months time so yes, for now the tank size is okay for the accomodation of fish, but will be upgraded to a 5 x 2 x 2 by january next year at the latest. For now though; The system is as follows; Tank 3 foot by 18 inches by 20 inches Tank Stand Standard Tank Stand stained Substrate 40kg of Frazer Island Sand (very white and bright sand) (will not use all but got enough to last for the upgrade tank too) Filtration 1 x Aqua One Aquis 1200 Canister Filter • 1.5L Seachem Matrix • Aqua One Ceramic Noodles • Various size sponges • Four finer woollen pads • DAZS Anti Phosphate Pad (May not be used yet) • DAZS Anti Ammonia Pad (May not be used yet) • DAZS Anti Nitri Pad (May not be used yet) • DAZS Black Sponge Pads x 3 • DAZS Fine Black Wool Pad • API Bio Chem Zorb Sachet 1 x ANS iFlo Filtration Set 17mm Lillypipes Lighting 1 x Hagen GLO Twin T5 HO light unit. 2 x Hagen GLO Tubes or 2 x 10 000K Tubes Heating 1 x Aqua One 300W Heater, To be Upgraded to a Hydor Inline heater within two months.
