Lake Malawi Biotope
Fish Phenom
All Glass 72 Gallon Bow Front
Brief Description of Tank
This Malawi biotope aquarium was set up with the idea of duplicating a natural habitat. An intermediate area (which accounts roughly for 30% of the lake) was created where the rocky coast meets the sandy zone. Lighting as well as rocks were positioned to create a sense of depth perception.
