I sure like your new set up, really high tech and a lot faster than the old one.

Anyways, the is another biotope interview posted, this one on the Rio Nanay in Peru. It is with Alberto Barboza at Aquatechnics, Inc. He is an importer in Miami, Fl that carries discus, rays, etc. Feel free to drop in and read it:

I wonder if Mr. Barboza has any underwater pictures of biotopes to share? These seem to be in such short supply yet it is these submersed biotopes that most people who are into biotope tanks look to recreate. That trio of red-spotted greens looks absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for the link!

The reason you don't see many underwater photos is the turbidity of the water. There are some clearwater rivers of course but they aren't even what you would call clear. There is another thread on Simply that has some underwater photos from an Amano magazine spread, I'll post the link if you want.
Also, I heard that Oliver L. from Belowwater.com took some underwater shots during his last trip to the Amazon, he hasn't posted them yet but when he does, I'll post the link.
