inspirational photos for biotopes?

I'm having a particular issue in finding images of the natural habitat of congo tetra. as you can imagine there is a lot of photos of the congo, the various beasties that inhabit it, or close ups of the congo tetra itself.

Is there a good source out there for underwater pictures/videos of various freshwater habitats from around the world? I could do a local biotope no problem; I can take a 20 minute drive to a few different state parks... but finding examples of a habitat in another part of the world is just difficult.

I have the same problem, I have trouble even finding a pic of a wild caught congo.
This is something I caught on tv from national geographic, been awhile since I watched it, so not sure how great it is.
I do remember a distinct lack of actual congo tetra though.
But it was very interesting none the less.

National Geographic Specials: Mystery Fish of the Congo

Not sure where to find it, but if you can find it check it out. Someday I will do a Congo river basin biotope, the diversity is amazing.

Will be watching this thread as well
