This is how karst spring looks like. There are almost no aquatic plants underwater, nor are there any fish, which is surprising, because there is a lot o fish food in the water (small Crustaceans). Aquascape of karst spring can be recreated in aquarium quite easily - you don't need expensive LED lighting, CO2 supply system or aquarium plant fertilizers. All what is needed are some stones and driftwood used as decoration, as well as some dried leaves put on the aquarium substrate. However, quite good filtration system should be used. First, becasue there are no aquarium plants which help to keep the water clean, second, because it would be good to create current, which is also present in the spring. If one would like to keep coldwater fish in such biotope aquarium, I would strongly advise to use aquarium chiller to keep water temperature below 10-15 Celsius degrees.
