while this is true I'm looking for pictures of blackwater tanks in general, planted and unplanted, biotopes and non-biotopes.

For my tank journal I just call it Amazon Blackwater because it is a blackwater tank with amazon fish, but it is planted and with plants from all over.

Thanks. Purchased on eBay after the hurricane in New York last year. Washed this up from a river up there.

Also try googling "Discus Biotope" some of these are just breath taking. These are representative of the Amazon river region.

I guess mine would be more asian themed, though not very well. Currently has a single sparkling gourami in recovery, and a breeding pair of honey gouramis in it, as well as a large colony of cherry shrimp. Someday I'll have to get updated, non-blurry pictures.

I like the leafs everywhere on the bottom, like a rainforest riverbed.
