Brazil, Amazonas, Barcelos

I used peat soils and pond sludge to simulate the riverbed environment of natural habitats. Also, the leaves were collected in the wild environment, the closest to where they originated.Wood is collected from dry areas near the river bank in the natural environment. The above materials are collected from the natural environment. But the algae and attachments on the riverbed are obtained through the precipitation of time.

Water care

In my fish tank, I use a lot of materials from the natural environment. These materials provide a lot of attachment space for nitrifying bacteria, which is one of the reasons why my water quality is always in good condition.

Another reason is that I change 1/4 of the water every week, which is also in line with the metabolic law in the natural environment. However, it should be noted that peat soil and pond mud are used in the bottom bed, and the water needs to be replaced very slowly to ensure that the bottom bed will not be damaged.

The heating device is turned on for 24 hours to ensure that the temperature in the fish tank is constant. The filter will also be on for 24 hours to ensure the stability of the water quality in the fish tank.
