 The  pictures  I  have  seen  of  the  scats  and  archer  fiehs  is  a  nice  biotope,  and  a  correct  one,  from  what  I  saw.
 
 Best  regards
 Heiko  Bleher
 www.aquapress-bleher.com                

 
 I  see  that  the  sunderbans  setup  has  been  appreciated.  
 
 It  really  is  gorgeous  to  look  at  but  as  per  the  definition  given  above  by  Heiko,  I  would  call  it  a  myotope  (My  own  tope)  of  sunderbans...................jus  kidding   Chuckle  
 
 On  a  more  serious  note...if  you  rate  it  as  by  Heiko  standards  then  IMO  I  find  the  following  a  bit  out  of  place.
 
 1.  The  wood  used  is  not  mangrove  roots  and  does  not  provide  the  impact  on  the  setup.
 2.  The  substate  used  looks  like  sand........very  rarely  mangroves  grow  in  sand.....atleast  not  in  sunderbans  as  far  as  I  know
 3.  I  found  coral  pieces  in  the  setup.  Mangroves  and  corals  dont  exist  together  as  corals  cant  handle  the  sedimentation  in  the  estury.
 
 But  all  of  you  guys  must  accept  that  the  setup  looks  gorgeous  even  if  it  has  these  small  glitches   Thumb Up  The  fishes  also  look  super  happy  and  healthy  and  if  the  setup  has  to  get  a  thumbs  up  from  Heiko  then  it  should  be  really  good.
 
 Now  to  come  to  my  opinion........If  the  fish  can  be  happy  with  some  other  wood  that  ressembles  mangrove  roots  then  I  guess  they  would  be  happy  if  these  shapes  were  made  of  PVC  also.
 
 Similarly  if  they  enjoy  sand  as  substrate  and  dont  find  the  dead  coral  out  of  place......I  feel  Madhu,  Nayak  have  a  valid  point.
 
 As  long  as  the  fish  are  happy  that  they  have  the  surroundings  to  cater  to  their  instincts  of  hiding,  burrowing,  swimming  against  current,  sifting  sand,  climbing  etc....they  would  be  happy  and  multiply.
 
 Now  a  small  food  for  thought..........can  anybody  replicate  tidal  influence  (unless  you  plan  to  do  a  water  change  every  12  hrs  Chuckle  ).  
 
 I  guess  nature  is  beyond  our  comprehension.  We  can  have  a  setup  that  simulates  her  but  you  cannot  have  her  exactly  the  same  as  she  is  out  there........
 
 So  guys  this  is  my  opinion.  lets  see  what  the  experts  say  Smile

 Smile  I  guess,  we  can  only  go  to  a  certain  extent  in  re-creating  a  biotope...not  everyone  can  actually  visit  the  biotopes  they  want  to  create  in  the  aquarium  leave  alone  collect  stuff  from  there  Chuckle

 Amen,  Lawrence.  And  you  have  hit  the  nail  right  on  the  head  Clapping  
 
 It  is  simply  impossible  to  create  something  in  a  glass  box  in  the  time  span  available  for  humans,  What  nature  created  in  Million's  of  years,  in  a  very  large  area,  with  infinite  variables  Very Happy  
 
 But  we  can  yet  attempt  to  come  nearest  to  it,  Talk  about  human  ego!   Chuckle  
 
 I  would  still  like  to  challenge  the  audacity  of  another  human  being  in  calling  someone's  effort  as  unworthy!  And  that  too  simply  because  he  wants  to  market  his  product!
 
 And  this  thread  is  all  about  which  method  is  nearest  to  being  the  correct  one?  Not  the  perfect  one,  mind  you.
 This  thread  is  going  to  be  scientific  debate  with  reasearch,  and  not  Vindictive   Smile  
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 I  remember  a  few  years  ago....  there  were  posts...  of  "semi  planted  tanks".
 
 A  tank  with  one  plant  in  an  plastic  ice  cream  cup.  
 
 Thankfully  all  those  threads  disappeared  with  the  planted  tank  hobby  catching  up  in  India  and  with  increased  availability.
 
 Heiko  has  provided  a  "definition"  of  a  biotope,  how  you  get  there  is  your  problem,  if  you  want  to.
 If  you'd  like  to  make  do  and  be  satisfied  with  substitution,  fair  enough,  and  you'd  like  to  define  it  as  a  biotope  no  one  can  stop  that.  Very Happy

 Indeed,  its  not  to  easy  to  recreate  biotopes  accurately.  Even  the  great  Heiko  has  got  Laubuca  dadiburjori  in  his  Bihar  tank  and  what  looks  like  Anubias  in  his  Central  American  tank.

 That  exactly  is  the  point,  Madan.  I  have  not  understood  Heiko's  definition  of  Biotope  and  how  it  differs  from  our's.  
 
 And  like  I  said  before  If  the  tanks  I  consider  Biotopes  are  not  actually  one,  Than  I  would  like  to  improve  and  not  stay  in  "semi-Biotope  tanks"  Chuckle  
 
 But  first  let  me  explain  and  show  the  setup  which  created  all  this  controversy,  and  we  can  go  further  from  there.
 Like  I  said  I  need  a  couple  of  hours  since  I  am  at  work  Smile

 This  is  Ben's  (amiidae)  tank  ,  not  quite  biotope  but  still  all  fish-mix  look  happy  to  me  to  whatever  it  was  offered.  They  certainly  reveal  the  feeling  of  'being  home'.  I  have  same  discus  sp.  with  me  currently  who  do  not  feel  like  an  alien  in  my  BB  tank  as  well.  It  eats  happily,  swim  gracefully  all  over  the  tank  &  show  its  natural  beautiful  colors  at  the  same  time.  It  doesn't  have  any  aggression  issues  from  other  discus  sp.  falling  from  other  Amazon  region  either.
 
 Hats  off  to  nature  &  its  'adaptability'.  Smile
 Very  interesting  topic  after  a  long  time.
 Keep  it  rolling!

 Hi  guys,
 
 as  I  can  see,  as  often  in  forums,  it  is  (almost)  a  waste  of  time  to  write  and  try  to  help,  because  there  are  always  guys  who  know  it  all  already  and  better,  and  one  has  to  ask  "why  bother".  Just  for  the  correctness:
 
 1.  Beta:  Laubuca  dadiburjori  although  described  from  Cochin,  Kerala,  has  a  very  wide  Indian  distribution.  You  should  know.
 And  Spatiphyllum  sp.  is  a  Central  and  northern  American  semi-aquatic  plant  (with  several  species),  and  the  only  thing  the  have  in  common  with  Anubias  is  that  both  belong  to  the  worldwide  found  family  Araceae.
 
 This  possibly  for  you  learn  something  from  someone  who  does  it  all  his  live,  and  maybe  before  you  make  the  next  critic  look  better,  as  Spatiphyllum  is  very  different  from  an  Anubia  species.
 
 2.  Crazyfish:  yes  it  is  correct,  not  everyone  can  go  there,  but  one  can  inform  himself,  the  is  good  literature  around  -  but  hardly  in  the  internet.
 
 3.  Nayak:  The  misconcept  of  a  so  called  biotope  in  an  aquarium  is  not  (and  should  NEVER)  be  done  for  the  human  ego!  It  should  be  done  for  the  well-being  of  the  fishes,  the  inmates,  to  create  a  community  and  environment  they  know,  and  not  for  the  "human  ego".  The  latter  is  a  totally  wrong  concept,  unfortunately  done  every  year  at  the  International  aquascape  contest  -  as  everyone  one  of  those  so  called  nature  aquariums  and  aquascapes  are  only  (and  exclusively)  done  for  the  ego  of  the  person  doing  it  and  NOT  FOR  THE  LIVING  FISHES,  those  are  all  unnatural  but  beautiful  underwater  gardens...  
 And  for  your  information:  another  misconcept  you  may  have  is  that  I  aim  to  market  my,  or  a  product!
 The  only  thing  you  are  correct,  is   that  no  one  is  perfect  one.  
 
 4.  Madan:  Thank  you.
 
 5.  Yohesh:  I  feel  sorry  for  you  (and  who  ever)  that  you  do  not  see  that   Ben's  (amiidae)  tank  is  a  disaster.  The   Heckel  Discus  are  being  picked  on  my  the  Etroplus  (which  comes  from  a  complete  differenet  world  -  could  not  be  more  different  the  environment  and  water  between  these  2  species).  The  Heckel  Discus  have  slime  on  the  eyeys.  dark  colour  (=  feeling  sick),  they  are  skinny  (certainly  because  the  others  eat  their  food),  and  also  the  Stanoperca  is  in  a  messy  state,  totally  skinny.     
 They  certainly  reveal  'CLEARLY  THAT  THEY  DO  NOT  FEEL  AT  HOME''.  
 Or  you  do  not  know  any  better  (and  do  not  want  to  learn),  or  you  do  not  see  the  difference  between,  stressed,  sick  and  skinny  fishes  vs.  normal,  healthy  and  happy  fishes  in  full  colours.
 Sorry  for  you.
 
 Still  best  regards  to  all  and  a  healthy  and  happy  new  year,

 I'm  not  sure  why  you  always  get  agitated  when  somebody  questions  what  you  are  saying.

 I  did  not  understand  this  as  a  question,  to  me  it  was  understood  as  an  accusation  (correcting  my  "wrong  doing").

 This  is  the  Biotope  we  are  talking  about,  Mr  Heiko  bleher.  The  source  of  all  controversy.
 
 
 
 I  am  sure  you  have  read  all  about  it  in  my  earlier  thread!
 If  you  will  be  a  bit  patient,  You  can  tell  me  what  am  I  "wrong  doing"  in  setting  it  up  Smile  
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Mr  Heiko  Bleher,
 
 Would  you  like  to  start  as  to  why  this  is  not  a  Biotope  aquarium?  Or  is  it  insufficient  information  to  decide?
 
 Have  you  seen  this  tank  before?
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 I  think  I  have  managed  to  deviate  from  the  intended  discussion  on  this  thread  so  my  apologies.
 
 
 Heiko:  I'm  questioning  what  you  are  saying.  I  have  never  been  to  Bihar  nor  Central  America  but  I  have  not  seen  any  papers  on  the  Laubuca  dadiburjori  range  extension  into  Bihar  either  so  I  remain  a  skeptic.  I  haven't  heard  about  Puntius  narayani  being  found  there  either  but  I  can  check  my  books  when  I  get  back  home,  accepting  that  books  might  not  always  be  accurate.
 I  do  follow  your  travels  around  the  world  and  I  have  your  discus  book  too  but  that  doesn't  mean  i'm  going  to  accept  everything  at  face  value.

 Hi,
 
 this  is  nice,  not  much  I  can  say  and  I  am  happy  you  did  it.  Normally  I  would  make  the  pile  of  rock  higher  towards  the  right  corner,  so  it  is  more  laike  the  creek(habitat  edges  -  going  from  the  (creeks)edge  down.  And  I  am  alsomst  sutre  ther  were  some  more  plants,  possibly  floating?  And  was  there  no  sand?  Just  gravel  and  rocks?  If  yes,  than  OK.
 
 All  the  best
