Just succeeded in creating a whitewater situation in my new tank. I was dumb enough to dump very fine white sand into my new tank and I can't see anything! Too much sedimentation floating about! I think I'll wait with putting in the pump until the sand has settled.
Sadly, this is why you can never really have a whitewater biotope tank. Look at my photos in the "Natural Catfish Aquarium article." Who would want to maintain an aquarium where you can not see the fish? True to nature, yes. Practical, no.

I figured as much. It was an accidental situation however, I was planning on doing something quite like the picture in the article but using a large mopani root and a decentsized piece of bogwood. The sediment should settle in a few days giving the roots a nice dusting. I do wish I had a camera though so I could share the sight with others of a whitewater tank as a deterent!
