A geographic tank is created by selecting fish from a certain geographical area. Aquarium often try to re-create the waterscape and species from an African lake, Southeast Asia or South America.

    A biotope aquaria is an aquarium that is set-up to simulate a natural habitat. The fish, plants, water chemistry, and furnishings are similar to those that can be found in a specific natural setting. (more)

    Always check compatibility! Some species from a particular habitat are not suitable tankmates. For example, the Peacock Bass will eat small tetras since they are their natural food in the wild.

    The biotope aquarium can be adpated by adding species from disparate areas that have similar water requirements.
