Southern Thailand Forest Creek Biotope
There are several options for a biotope tank modeled after the conditions in these stream habitats including
- sunny pools
- shaded shallows
- rocky rapids
A roughly neutral pH would be a good starting point for such a tank. The temperature should be 26-29°C (78-84°F).
There are a few tank arrangement options depending on the biotope the aquariast is attempting to recreate. The substrate varies from mud to sand to scattered pebbles and river rocks, so sand to coarse gravel is suitable for use in the aquarium. In all setups, use an effective filter that keeps the water clean and crystal clear.
Loaches, freshwater puffers, barbs, danios, and other cyprinds.
