Now on to a brighter subject. A Bio-Tope is an aquarium that represents a little slice of nature. It involves setting up a tank to mimic the fish's natural environment and including species that might be found together in their natural habitat. For example, a Lake Malawi bio-tope would include a sand substrate, rocks, no plants, hard water and cichid species from Lake Malawi. TO make a bio-tope, decide on a prImary FISH SPEcies you like (SOrry my keyboard shift key is sticking) RESeArCh IT online AND set up the taNk with native plaNTS ETC. I'm going tO stop Typing now thIS Is drIVINg Me crazy!
I'm like you. I think it is best to show your fish in its natural habitat. But what would be natural for a glofish? I thought you were telling me that I should make a biotope for them. I was trying to figure would that be a sterile laboratory tank, or Vegas. They are pretty and eyecatching. I like goldfish and when I have them I keep them in a kitchy tank that I let my kids set up complete with pirates and mermaids. I mean how can you do a biotope for an animal that has been bred in bowels for thousands of years?
I like the Vegas thing too!
Does a blacklight get hot? Years ago I cracked the glass on my light hood by putting a red light up there to see my fish at night.Lupine wrote:Actually they are very brightly colored in regular light, and the "special" light is just a blacklight, you can buy one at walmart for around $10. You don't have to buy the high dollar LED light.
