Avalon I (once called  "Swamp")


It is too bad that it is almost impossible to take a decent picture of this tank ! That is because the underwater part is darker that the outside... I changed the look of this tank after almost three years... As you may remember, this aquarium is an experimental project (see here for the initial notes): the water is never changed and there is no filter, but only a pump. I was actually worried too touch about this delicate microenvironment, but I wanted to re-decorate it, tuning it according to my personality (that's a little different than what it looked three years ago!).

I actually changed only a few things, to be sure not to break its natural balance.

I moved the pump to create a spring, positioned some white zeolite stones over the surface and I planted some Anubias and Cryptocorynes in the gravel.

In these pictures, you can see two of the "inhabitants" of this tiny world. A serious and  proud freshwater crab and a Botia macracantha... As every Botia lover knows, a healthy Botia sleeps in unbelievable positions!!!
