Watch Interpretation of a South American river habitat. The fish in the tank may not all originate from the same place, but are all from the Amazon.
Main fish are a group of eartheaters. They are about 2 1/2 years old by now, still youngsters. The Chalceus are keeping the area the surface busy, but they are outgrowing the tank quickly.
