Lukan's Zebra Biotope

Post by Lukan » Thu Feb 09, 2012 6:55 pm


It started out with a Bushy Nose pleco and the rest is history. I've been keeping Hypancistrus L66, L260, L333's in my display tank with a few of my Discus. As i learn more about Hypans the more zebra's kept coming back at me. I've kept fishtanks for the past 20 year from Saltwater to reef to discus and now to hypancistrus. Funny enough a friend of mine offered me a school of zebra's and i said no because my heart was so set on Discus. Fast forward 2 years later i told my friend that he should have twisted my arm to keep his school of zebra's. I've been fortunate enough to acquire a breeding group that belong to a hobbyist that was leaving the hobby because life got in the way.

As i visited planetcatfish and this site, a few tanks inspired me to keep zebra's. I would like to give credit to the following members for inspiring me to create the biotope for my zebras.

Everyone here especially TTA, Midnight ,Apistomaster, Rich of CanadaPleco and Shawn have been so helpful in answering my questions.

Here is my biotope.

I like this sand with those rocks -- nice clean look.

What kind of sand is it, if you don't mind me asking.
