JBL Rio Pantanal®
Jungle aquarium type JBL Rio Pantanal®
Would you like to have a piece of jungle river in your living room? This aquarium shows a beautiful underwater landscape from South America with its typical dwellers, including the neon tetra, which is one of the most colourful little gems of the Amazon region.
A jungle aquarium has to be one of the most beautiful types of aquariums with its wonderful mingling of magnificent plants and colourful fish. The dwarf cichlids demonstrate some interesting behaviour as they care for their brood and the neon tetras and pencil fish display their breath-taking colours. After a running-in time of one to two weeks the plants will start growing, giving your aquarium a jungle character.
Modelled on nature
We named this aquarium “Rio Pantanal® “ because the water in Brazil’s Pantanal is one of the clearest waters in the world. Looking at the fish stock we also could have named the aquarium Rio Negro or Amazon Region. But the water of these rivers either have a white-cloudiness or a deep brown colour.
