Sounds like a great set up in the making. I can imagine a large school of the pristella would look very nice.
I believe nannostomus nannostomus are quite wide spread in Suriname.
Apistogramma stiendachneri is also native.
I think you've got some great species to choose from.
I'm sure the tank will look great and I look forward to seeing it.
Good time of year to be setting up a new tank. Loads of free decor falling off the trees.
Thinking about a small shoal of Carnegiella strigata,

Yeah nice fish, was thinking about the silver hatchets for my tank.
Thinking more BIG shoal though.
A big shoal would look good in your tank, I think the Guianacara will take up a bit of space in mine.

Yeah I guess so. Are you planning any more cichlids?
I picked up another pair of apistogramma trifasciata yesterday. I'm really enjoying dwarf species at the moment.

Since they provide bi parental care of young, they look like egg laying geophagous. What interest me are the large bubbles emerging from the stream bed. Are they methane, CO2, N2 or just air?

The video is partial. Where is the rest of it.

Looks like the video got removed but the fish are a not yet described species of geophagus.
The rising bubbles are caused by underground freshwater springs.
