Cool fish, my last neon was eating yesterday by a silver shark my dad put in, I had a bad feeling about that shark.

Great stuff Sergey!
I know all of this stuff very good of course, as i am the member with the most fishtanks around here. Cool
But these aquarium grotto's as you call them, are quit expensive here. Shocked
But when i saw them the first time, i immediatly saw the possibilities for displaying my models, and for a model zoo.
In fact they are better for that, then for use in a fishtank, as they do look not to natural enough for me...
But for the fish it doesn't matter, they don't see the difference between these grotto's, natural grotto's, a coconut-shelf or a little flowerpot, but i like to make settings as natural as possible.
Here an example how my livingroomtank looks at the moment, the pic is not very sharp, sorry...
The pic was taken in october this year, it resambles a South-America Amazon biotop...




Wow! The beautiful underwater "jungle landscape" Willy!! cheers cheers cheers

I followed your recommendation and bought a pair of aquarium (or terrarium) caverns for my shelves. They fit perfectly with the animals! I'll take some pics for evidence.

Thank you all for the compliments guys!
I can name a lot of species here, but pics say more then only names.
These are the species in my South-American biotop in my livingroom.
I don't use the English names, as they are very different from the Dutch or scientific names.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Ancistrus species(this fish will never have a family name, as it is a mix of several species through the years).
It is a catfish that helps you clean up the alge in your tank.
I have 2 brown, and 2 albino's of this fish, which breed regularly, and now and then some young appear in the tank in both colours.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
This is the Carnegiella strigata, a little fish that stays close to to surface of the water, where it even jumps out, and flies over the water-surface in case of danger, like the famous flying fish, i have 8 of them in this tank.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
From this Cichlasoma amazonerum i have a breeding pair, which is from the big cichlid-family, and they have baby's every 2 weeks or so.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Another cichlid species, the Cleithacara maronii, named after the Maroni river in Surinam South-America, another breeding pair.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
One of more then 400 species in this group of little armoured catfish, the Corydoras sterbai, from which i keep a group of 10.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Hemigrammus bleheri, or rummynose tetra as Balti called them, we call the rednosed tetra's, i have a school of 20 in this tank.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The black phanthom tetra, as we call them to in Dutch, Hyphessobrycon megalopterus, i keep a group of 10 in this tank to.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Microgeophagus altispinosa, a dwarfcichlid from Bolivia, i have a couple of them to.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Paracheirodon axelrodi, the kardinal tetra as we call them, the most kept aquariumfish in the world, i have them in a school of 35.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Wild Guppy, i have a group of 8 in my tank, the first young of wildcought guppy's from Colombia, which a friend of mine brought me from there.
Not one is the same colour, and they are much smaller and different from the guppy's we know from the fishstore.

Next to this tank i have about 70 more species in my home, as i sell tropical fish from home, all in my aquazoo-room.

Sorry that i took over your tread a little bit Sergey, i just wanted to show these fish. Laughing

Thank you amy!
I did put out some artificial plants the last weeks, and changed them for real aquatic plants now.
I did get some fish-species out to, and changed them for some others.
The kardinal- or red neons are out, everybody has them in their tank, for them i have cuppersalmons now.
Then i have a new catfish, and some new dwarfcichlids.
Here they are:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A school of 15 cuppersalmons(Hasemania nana) are new in the tank, replacing the red kardinal tetra's.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
This catfish, known under the number L081, also as Golden nugget, from the Baryancistrus family, is new in the tank to.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And then a little group of this beautifull dwarf-cichlid, Apistogramma agassizii, double red variation, 2 males with 4 females are in the tank now.

Thank you Sergey, a lust for the eyes indeed! cheers
But it is easy for me to change the inhabants of my main fish-tank from time to time, i do sell tropical fish from home, i have more than 40 tanks in a seperate room, with thousands of fish, and almost 100 species here... Laughing
