English Biotope (in London!) Photojournal

Went cycling along the Catford riverside park (near where I stay) yesterday with my camera and took a series of photos to illustrate the English 'biotope'!!

It was a beautiful spring day in London with plenty of sunshine and clear blue sky, an ideal day for nature photography. I have captured some photos for inspiration if anyone thinking of setting up an English Biotope tank!!

Aquatic plant is nearly non-existent apart from one which looks like a terrestrial fern which happened to be submerged in water. There are some marginal plants which I am not sure of the IDs.

I did not see any sign of fish or inverts although there was a heron standing in a pond indicating that there might be fish/inverts in the pond that requires a heron's eye to spot.

Here is the gallery:

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for looking.

So how would you create that in an aquarium? Just a load of silt and a plastic herron from a garden center?

Hi messy da legend,

A plastic heron would be difficult to find and it may float? Perhaps a porcelin heron would be better if you like? Just a suggestion for you.
