Tannin Aquatics Posted August 1, 2016 Report Share Posted August 1, 2016 We receive more and more questions related to the establishment and long-term maintenance of "New Botanical"-style aquariums, and we are excited, because it's an indication that more and more hobbyists are keen on the idea of establishing and keeping one of these aquariums.
