Thank you, I just looked, I found that Apistogramma sp. "barcelos" (A57) and Apistogramma mendezi, rare fish for me in France

Thank you very much to the 3 of you for your help

My aquarium arrived today, I'm going to order Kessil LED A160WE Tuna Sun x2 and I'm still hesitating which filter to choose... for the decor there are on the pictures, plus Coconut palm spathe x5 , Ouriço nut pod x1 (out of stock) , Sapucaia pod x3, Giant Palm Branches.

While I'm a fan of Tannin Aquatics and Scott himself in particular... You could have gotten these botanicals from European providers for less and without the detour via North America. Just as a hint because as botanicals will degrade you will need more at some point.

Love the choices of the particular botanicals though.

I ordered my Coconut palm spathe x5 , Ouriço nut pod x1 (out of stock) , Sapucaia pod x3, Giant Palm Branches from marc-del. It's just that I don't find certain products.

Admittedly, I have no grasp of the hobby in France. I speak 3 languages besides German and English, but French isn't one of them.
So the stuff from Tannin Aquatics is what you couldn't get here? If not and you are still missing things, send me a PM, maybe I can arrange something or point you to the right shop.

Hi,

If you have knowledge of european retailers, can I message you too? I particularly don´t like the postage from US to europe...

Hey!!
i’m sure you have seen this but if not, i’m sure you can find some great inspiration for your setup.
i haven’t checked Google Maps if the location also fits what you want to do, but it’s great nonetheless.

as for places to buy botanicals here in Europe. Here’s a few links (-though it sounds like MacZ, got some great insights on that matter):

unimati: shop in Denmark. I have just got my first order from there.

Aquariumspullen: a dutch shop, i have thougt of trying out.

Cool. That’s good.
