What I would like is some input on turning one of these plastic tubs into a 
geopraphic pond/tank for my swords and platies. I guess the environment 
would be the Mexican Yucatan. What water conditions, plants and fish 
(besides X hellerii, maculatus and variatus are prevalent)?

The second tub will be an Indian/Nepali drainage canal/paddy minus the raw 
sewage, holy cows and homeless indiginents. Here I intend to place some C 
lalia, C sota and add some plants native to the area. Luckily, I'm now

anyone has been to Malaysia or has done a Malaysian stream tank please 
provide some info as to what plants and fish are compatible.
