Underwater Feedings

Along with our observations of the fish species there, it was the underwater feeding trials that impressed us the most. The fish jumped greedily to reach the JBL PlanktonPur Sticks and JBL Gala flakes we offered them. We’ll also remember our extreme dives. We left the surface and entered a dark black-brown nothingness. At a depth of just 2 metres you could hardly make out the surface and below you there was still nothing. At a depth of four to eight metres there was nothing at all to be seen, neither above nor below. And then the ground suddenly appeared. You could make out tree trunks, sand, stones and fish. The water was crystal-clear but also deep brown. The surface had disappeared completely! This experience is difficult to describe and we only can recommend everyone to dive some metres deep into the blackwater. It doesn’t need to be 8 metres. 5 metres are quite enough!

Tetras and cichlids were the most common fish. We also sighted Crenicichla, Mesonauta festivus and even some Geophagus. The Crenicichla pairs were particularly beautiful, as they conscientiously looked after their fry.
