Brazilian expedition to Pantanal

Hi people!
A dear friend of mine (Mauricio) went to dive in a place that all of you really should visit at least once in lifetime!
Here some pictures he has shared in his HP.

magnificent, thank you for the links to those photos.
those floating driftwood shots with moss on top and
fish on bottom would be a great motif for a tall tank.
what were those small bright red fish in the shallows?

¡Beautiful!

Google translation did a decent job at translation if you guys want to read the article. It's in Portugese btw.

And it's interesting how one plant is the dominant in these environment.
And also, check out the PO4 or Fe! These plants are living on nothing and in sunlight. I'm sure the other nutrients are low as well.

I believe they are Serpae Tetras or Red Phantoms by the coloration... Not sure though.

Hello people,
Yes, the red fishes are Serpae Tetras, aka here in Brazil as "Mato-Grossos", maybe a homage to the State where is the greatest part of the Pantanal.
Nutrients in water may be low, but as they are in a river stream, I am pretty sure that they never run out. So, this is the results of permanent "water change" with constant CO2 and nutrient levels.
Even for us, from Brazil, this pictures are astonishing. I, myself, never have the opportunity to travel there.
Best regards,
Livio
