That is a neat river tank and I assume it is supposed to imitate the fishes natural environment but they don't seem very comfortable in it, at least not at first.

This is exactly what their natural habitat is like. This was shot a bit later and you can see they've settled in well.

Wow, the second video really clears up a few questions I had about that huge fast-flowing tank, and how and why it is set up that way

Thanks talldutchie

This is exactly what their natural habitat is like. As I assumed. The initial introduction to the tank was a bit of a shocker for them, though I could see they started to get used to the current and settle in by the end of the first video.

Awesome setup for a river tank, puts the smaller setups with powerheads and pvc to create a linear flow to shame. Add a chiller and you could keep trout.

Superb videos. I've never seen anything like it - wonderful! I'd love to have something like this set into a wall in the bathroom, along the top of the bath. :smile: How cool.

Got any more videos of river tanks?
