NT billabong biotype ideas

Recommended Posts

Hopefully setting up a 4ft aquarium (unsure of exact measurements) for a macleays water snake, planning on doing a Northern territory billabong biotype with driftwood, live plants, fish and invertebrates. Could anyone give some plant suggestions? Water will be slightly alkaline

Hi fantastic looking snakes and as you are probably aware they are found in QLD. If you are interested I've dived with them - QLD habitat is fastflowing crystal clear water rainforest streams - water temp 15 to 22 degrees. They inhabit sections where the water flow is reduced substantially by 'pools' created by the substrate (medium gravel) being dug out by the current. Driftwood stacked from base of rivers to the top and they live amongst the wood. Minimal submerged vegetation where they occur. Hope you post some pics when you have the snake! Cheers

Cheers mate, good bit of info there. Their habitat seem to be quite varied. even heard of them living in drains.
