    Hello everyone, it has been quite a while since I last signed on, the first thing I would like to say is that I recently moved, and unfortunately even after a long acclimation time, I lost the acaricthys hecklei in the move, so I decided to sit on the 60 gallon for a while until I have something more suitable for permanent residence there. In the mean time, I have a new project, and this one I have been prepping for quite a while now, I have a five sided 270 litre corner tank which I will soon be setting up for the concept that got me started in aquariums and pointed me in the direction of icthyology as my planned major to begin with. The idea is an aquatic environment along an area of steep erosion, heavy amounts of driftwood will be present, also I plan to have a tall canopy with viewing panes (I am building this my self) and have it contain some form of semi aquatic organism (small amphibious crabs, some kind of newt, or maybe a small peaceful frog) to take advantage of this area. I plan on having it be self sustaining and will be purchasing freshwater planktonic organisms to fill in the prey niche. Also it is to be a biotope and everything going in the tank will be determined by the following question: should the centerpiece fish be Apistogramma bitaeniata or Poecilocharax weitzmani? One will be in the tank but not the other, and all of the environment’s other species will be determined by which of theses becomes the addition.

     

    Thanks, Donovan

    Would have to be the Apistos for me, weitzmani are stunners but if the aquarium is decorated to suit them you’ll see them very rarely, and they are not long-lived. If you have some true Splashing Tetras they’ll make use of overhanging leaves to do what they do best.
