Hey Internet, this is a very broad list of my favorite Black Water Fish, and I am defining "Black Water" as having a ph of 5.5 or lower, leaf debris and high tannins giving it an amber to cola colored hue, along with vitamins and minerals ( and not calcium carbonate ). Found in The Amazon frequently, in ox bow lakes, seasonal ponds, and bogs throughout south east Asia and Borneo/Sumatra. My Top 5 Black Water Fish-For Color, Behavior & Ease of Care (Species Groups) More than Just Discus! - Tetras, bleeding heart, neon, black, silver tip, and If you're reading this... rasboras as well. - Dwarf Cichlids such as apistos and checkerboard cichlids - Gouramis from Countries like Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea with licorice and chocolate gouramis holding the title for some of the darkest and most acid fish - Angel Fish , with blue species catching my eyes most, beware they can be nippy - Catfish, from Woodcats, Big Red Tails and also the crowd favorite of corydoras!

Have a few stunt guppies in there and used a little starter bacteria. Runs about 6.5 ph. A little less blackwater and much clearer than in the video. About 19 gallons (38 column) The entire support base is big manzanita root/branches. Having SUCH a hard time deciding on what to put in there it's ridiculous.
