Brazil, Amazonas, Nhamundà

Rio Nhamundà is located in the northwest of Alenquer town. The water here is teal in color, and and has the pH is between 5.0-7.5. fallen leaves, and debris. The sunken wood provides shelter for the aquatic creatures.

The underwater forest landscape was my inspiration for creating this biotope. The Symphysodon discus in this area is my favorite fish.
