Fuwen river, a tributary of the Emei River, China

Sponsored by

China, Sichuan, Chengdu

In order to better restore the underwater environment of the habitat I described, the rocks and sand I used are all collected from the streams in this basin. As a practitioner in the service industry, I can only take a break on Monday. I have a group of friends who also take a break on Monday. We get together and explore in the wild river every Monday.

When I saw this river for the first time, I was instantly attracted by the beauty scene in front of me. I snorkeled in the water and watched the underwater scene. The sun hits the water, the ripples in the water, and the fish swimming in the water, forming a beautiful picture.

In order to better restore the underwater environment of the habitat I described, the rocks and sand I used are all collected from the streams in this basin. As a practitioner in the service industry, I can only take a break on Monday. I have a group of friends who also take a break on Monday. We get together and explore in the wild river every Monday.

When I saw this river for the first time, I was instantly attracted by the beauty scene in front of me. I snorkeled in the water and watched the underwater scene. The sun hits the water, the ripples in the water, and the fish swimming in the water, forming a beautiful picture.

Aquarium equipment
  • EHEIM professionel 3 filter
  • EHEIM streamON wave pump (4000L/h)
  • Kessil 360x Tuna Sun 90w (6000k-9000K color spectrum) (2)

In order to restore the turbulent flow of the river in the habitat, I chose to use a filter and a large-flow wave pump. Under their action, the water flow velocity is very turbulent. Under the illumination of the light, the ripples on the water surface splashed down the bottom of the tank, which is fantastic. Sometimes, I think the fish in my tank actually live in that stream.

Comment by the expert

Fan Li: It is a beatiful and healthy biotope. Algae grew on the stone surface, and fishes were active. The system seems in perfect condition. However, the density of fishes in this aquarium seems a bit high from the video.

Zhou Hang: The light, the waves and the algae on rocks look very natural. Summer is the time when small fishes grow up, so the size and number of fishes in the tank is also very reasonable.
