Cultural shift in the hobby

Public awareness and active involvement of the aquarists brings together aquarists, scientists and policy makers in an effort to document and monitor the conditions of aquatic habitats, their inhabitants, water quality and possible introduction of alien invasive species that cause damage to native species, ecosystems and even to people.

Biotope movement is producing a cultural shift in the hobby, substantially raising awareness for conservation of freshwater habitats around the globe and forcing the aquatic industry to apply the eco-sustainable approach and social responsibility.

BIOTOPE AQUARIUM is focused on conservation of the species.
