The aquarium was setup in 30/08/08, but I don`t have any recent general picture, the tank is passing through an algae infestation. :wacko:


My friend Dennis helping with the setup.


The iriatherinas and endlers are in another aquarium now.


I love this fish, it`s a pity that is hard to find in stores.




The downoi is very rare here, I have some thanks to Reinaldo that gave me one stem.


Oto doing its job.

Thats all, I hope that you like! :D

P.S. - The name of the tank is a joke with the fancy english tank names in brazilian foruns, like "green valley" or "refreshing summer breeze". I do not speak german, but with the help of the google translator I choose this name that means "stunted vegetation".

P.S.2 - I think that I should have posted this thread in the "Nano Aquariums" sub-forum.... :oops:

Hey Chantal,
Thanks for sharing your nano set up with us, it is very nice. I too like amandae tetras, they can color up much nicer than what you see in stores.

The arrangement of your rocks is very strong but not over powering, very well done.

Be sure to share more about this set up as it develops.

I wish I could set up something like this...always worth a try. I was lucky to find those tetras at my lfs, but I didn't buy any, since I didn't want to risk them being from poor stock.
