What is AQUATIC BIOTOPE?
Before we come to this, we need to understand what a BIOTOPE is.
The English loanword derives from the German ‘Biotop’, which in turn came from the Greek bios=‘life’ or ‘organism’ and topos=‘place’. BIOTOPE is an area of uniform environmental conditions providing a living place for a specific assemblage of plants and animals.
Referring to an AQUATIC BIOTOPE, we are talking about a living space where many different organisms like fishes, shrimps, snails, and plants comprise a biological community. They interact and depend on each other. Like people. Like us.
This fascinating behaviour can be observed in the aquarium. If it is a BIOTOPE AQUARIUM.
Why? Because a BIOTOPE AQUARIUM is the closest possible replication of the natural environment. A micro-ecosystem created in your home. It is a perfect symbiosis between scientific research and aquarium passion. AUTHENTIC, UNIQUE, ALIVE.
In today’s industrialized and globalized world many aquatic species are struggling to survive in the wild. In the BIOTOPE AQUARIUM they have a chance.
That is why the BIOTOPE AQUARIUM Project was born. The place where everyone can learn how to build a correct BIOTOPE AQUARIUM where fishes, shrimps, and snails will show their natural behaviour and most beautiful colours. Because they feel well. THEY FEEL AT HOME.
