Big water change (50%), and the snails always get out to munch on things. Fun pic here...

The new tetras do look like little sharks. That photography is stunning. Love to see them living their lives...

That's a fascinating thread on the river tank. Love the driftwood above the waterline (would never have thought to do that), and the rocks are gorgeous! I gather all my wood from the shores of the Potomac around here and have found some really nice pieces. I hope someday to have a tank big enough for Boesmani rainbows and Congo tetras together--my largest so far is just a 55. I'm fascinated by your tanks that seem to recreate and stay true to geographic locations. I have always just thrown in what I think is pretty or interesting without thinking much about accuracy.

Appreciate your response about the calcium. I was wondering if you needed it for shells of invertebrates or something. I have enjoyed following your threads about shrimp tanks.
Thank you for sharing and the kind words. My tanks wouldn't be true biotopes for the most part, but in the spirit of their native environment.

It is fascinating watching videos of fish in their native homes, although some fish, are hard to find in video / documentary type footage. I always look around for it when thinking of new tanks. Read up to see what other people have done and how they set their fish up.

Also it is so interesting how many kinds of sand can be found (to use in tanks). Obviously sand comes from all locations around the world - river areas (past and present)and oceans, and these days there are more avenues to get things from "exotic" places, and far away locations.

Like purple Garnet sand from Idaho which is close to me but not close enough to scoop up myself), but there is also a sunset orange Garnet type which is really beautiful.

Enjoying the tank is the objective, along with having a good home for the inhabitants. The creatures are so fascinating!
