Deep in the jungle, the large tree sticks its roots into a dark spring. Here, the little Anubias 'Petite' finds its foothold with the 'Spiky'-moss. The moss is particularly suitable for growth on vertical roots. Cryptocoryne 'Tropica' stretches its brown-coloured leaves out into the light from its place under the tree roots. Monosolenium thus thrives in the dark as well as the light near the surface - the scale moss takes up a lot of space with the wide leaves.

A red fighting fish (Betta splendens) would be a suitable choice to provide colour and sparkle in the small aquarium - besides the fighting fish, we recommend ram's horn snails, shrimps and Otocinclus affinis to keep the aquarium clean and free from algae.

Tips! All the chosen plants grow slowly and make the aquarium very easy to maintain - after the running-in, the aquarium requires a 25% change of water every second week and a little fertilizer, and months between having to cut the plants.
The Ranunculus did not thrive in this set-up and was exchanged for Monosolenium on small rocks.
