The Apistogramma felt “like in home” immediately, but also the Hyphessobrycon serpae with white fins Peter Guennel’s establishment and the new red-tail Hyphessobrycon sp. from the Igarapé Sauvaudaua, see above

To the biotope from Aru Island, here quite authentic, was only added some Melanotaenia boesemani (above), as of the new discoveries Heiko made in 2007, the neon-blue Melanotaenia sp. 2 (Aru II) above left and the Melanotaenia sp. 3 (Aru IV), which might be Weber’s Melanotaenia senkenbergianus, which is a beauty, were not anough for this large aquarium. And all went very well

The biotope of the Rio Mineruá, Amazonas, Brazil, was also enriched by some beautiful new angelfish (5) variants from the upper Amazon in Peru

These beautiful angelfishes are from the upper Amazon in Peru. Note: this aquarium has only 2 green discus in an authentic biotope with angelfishes, as in nature (Mineruá), but normaly there should be a group of green discus, not only 2…
