BIOTOPE
Below you will find links to lists of freshwater fish from various countries. These lists have been generated from Fishbase.org - an ambitious project to provide indexing and links for all known species as the baseline dataset for studies of global biodiversity. All content for these pages is copyright Fishbase.org.

I have included the tables to assist in the construction of biotope aquaria. Many of the descriptions on Fishbase.org provide information on the range and habitat types individual fish species. Used in conjunction with the biotope descriptions found on mongabay.com [see below], this can be a most valuable resource for those interested in biotope aquaria.

Mongabay.com is the sole effort of Rhett A. Butler, who has taken the photos and written all of the content found on the site. If you find mongabay.com a useful resource I hope that you will consider making a donation to help support the site.

Thank you for your continued interest.
