#4927 Blackwater tributary in Nhamundà area, Amazonas

Sponsored by

Brazil, Amazonas, Nhamundà

Inspired by the original appearance of the tributaries in the Nhamunda area, the BAM of this 800L biotope aquarium was set-up. Sunken trees, dead branches and a large number of fallen leaves are arranged in the tank. The pH of water body was controlled at 5.0 by using grass mud pills. A large amount of humus in the water body will dye the water body dark brown, so as to restore the original environment with slow and quiet water flow to the greatest extent.
