This is fantastic! I love leaf litter. I'm sure your fish will really enjoy this and flourish.

If only I was in Brazil, I could accomplish a dream and create an 'el natural', true biotope of the region.

Fabian, why not use local, natural substrate materials instead of Tropica? Not accessible, not ideal?

Even the Brazilians, the majority, have no time to enjoy the nature of his own country, today they work on Monday and the second makes it very difficult for some to enjoy life ... Carnival, holiday, Amazon a few miles of us (even so far ... so to say).
In the USA also has beautiful regions such as the marshes and rivers of crystalline water in Florida ... Grand Kenion and etc. The world is beautiful! The people that leave the ugly world ...

Sorry the bad English

That hug

I guess if I take the size of Brazil into consideration I can see how it's hard to visit those places. It's not so hard here in Florida, it's small so you either live in pine trees, in the swamp, or on the beach.
