Provincial Mandarian Tree Biotope
Had this one in limbo for a few months. Planed a trip to a scenic spot but couldn't get much from that. I wanted to take stuff from a nature area; however, nearly all trips were in groups done with a tour guide. So, I thought about getting stuff near my local area, but didn't see much that I could use, and felt a bit strange pulling stuff out of the ground if others were watching. As a result, I dismissed the idea of doing what I had originally wanted.
About 3 weeks ago, some water plants indigenous to Guangxi province, were being sold at the market where I buy most of my stuff. I found a few varieties and all were inexpensive, so it was much easier for me to just buy those than go into the river or lake myself.
Looked for some local land plants and found a few. The most unique feature is the mandarin orange tree that grows naturally in Southern Guangxi province. A few leaves, especially from the bottom, frequently tend to fall off, though.
There are 2 local transparent shrimps in there. I am trying them out and will probably get more. Looking for some local small fish, too.
