Starting an Asian Biotope Tank

March 27, 2009

This weekend we are starting up our 46g Asian Biotope Tank!

Concept: Southeast Asian Blackwater Pool Biotope

Future Fish Species:

Zebra Danio (Danio rerio)

Angelicus Loach (Botia kubotai)

Kuhli Loach (Pangio kuhlii)

Blue Gourami (Trichogaster trichopterus)

Decor: Live Plants & Driftwood; no rocks aside from the substrate

Substrate: Laterite & Gravel mix; we are going for an iron-rich look; the literature suggests this tank should have a iron-rich substrate, and that lots of laterite should be present…we’ll be mixing in smaller smooth stones of reddish tones

Current: Slow-moving; “pool”
