View Full Version : altum tank

Tank is 5' long, 2' deep and 3' tall. A mixture of 6 tank bred altums (parents from Rio Orinoco, bred by Dale Jordan in Canada, came to me through two US sources) and 2 wild ones (Rio Atabapo, got them as juvies from John aka Snookin21). The tank bred ones have incomplete middle bars, which is believed to be caused by growth conditions when they are young.

Amazing! I love the clean amazon look with the subdued lighting. Absolutely perfect for the Altums!

You master the art of dramatic yet gorgeous look. Very nice and well done. Better than watching TV!

Thanks guys :) there are some wrong plants (Anubias) but most have died because the water is so soft. Also had some cardinals, which were all eaten by the altums :(
