FINALLY an Amazon biotype. I've been searching and searching on this forum with no real thread or pictures. I want to do the same thing.
Are you going to add any other fauna? What size tank?
I set up a South American Clearwater Stream tank
South American Clearwater Stream
Clear or blue water streams are transparent rivers that drain the Guyana highlands and the Brazil rocky highlands.
These rivers are fast-flowing at times, but slow-moving at others.
The Rio Xingu and Rio Tocantins are typical clear water rivers.
pH 6.9-7.3, 5-12 dH, 75-82 F (24-28 C)
The tank should have good filtration which keeps the water clear and creates a moderate current.
The lighting should be bright and plant life should be rich.
A substrate of fine gravel is suggested, as are a few pieces of wood.
Aerate the tank well.
Sword plants, Ceratophyllum, Cabomba, Lemma, Limnobium, Vallisneria
Loricarids, Corydoras, Uaru, Mesonauta, Hyphessobrycon.
These waters are preyed by the Peacock Bass.
