    That's a river manifold. Would indeed be an interesting option for denisons

    Looks like a giant hillstream loach setup.

    As I have mentioned, i have 2 canisters on my tank. One is in each corner. Filter A has it's spraybar mounted to the side glass, so that the water is pushed across the front of the tank, towards filter B. Filter B has it's spraybar mounted vertically on the back glass, pushing the water along the back of the tank, towards filter A. This creates a circular flow in the tank. In my experience the fish prefer this bidirectional linear current over traditional setups.

    This may seem like a silly questi0n, but EG. Tr0ut like fast m0ving water because it is high in 0xygen but they need places t0 rest. In a river tank the fl0w w0uldn't be quite as high- w0uld the fish (in this case , the barbs) need current breaks such as larger r0cks- t0 rest behind? And w0uld the circular fl0w cause a pr0blem finding a resting place? I find these setups intriguing, but I am c0mpletely at a l0ss f0r kn0wledge- s0 I'm n0t ready myself t0 set 0ne up.
    When in d0ubt read it until it makes sense, then read it again!

    There's various ways to create flow but you're right a rest area is usually a good idea

    Just like in the wild, aquarium fish structure in the form of rocks, woods, plants to hide behind and take a break.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Cool. Someone raised an ethical issue - I didn't realize they were endangered in the wild. What are folks' thoughts on that? Is there a way besides price to confirm the source of stock?

    Hmm.. not really. Can you trust your shop?

    Here in the states most "CHAIN" aquarium stores get their freshwater fish from Seagrest farms in Florida.

    Had a quick look. They seem to raise some things themselves but on the vast majority of their fish they';re very vague.
