CENTRAL AMERICAN FRESHWATER TANK
This type of aquarium, particularly suitable for beginners, reconstitutes a freshwater
Central American environment. The fish living in it (the Poeciliid family) will
soon reproduce if the conditions are right. It is advisable to provide yourself
with a rearing tank, to help the fry develop. You can then move on to the true livebearers
coming from the same geographical region: Anieca splendens and Xenotoca eiseni.
The plants shown here grow fairly quickly and it is easy to take cuttings from them;
they are therefore a good means for taking your first steps in plant decor, which
is sometimes neglected by beginners at the expense of fish until they realise the
importance of vegetation.
