Not a very sophisticated tank - just 3 granite pebbles on a thin layer of inert sand. Eucalypt leaves and sticks (aged in the bottom of a pond) with some Indian Almond and Mulberry added for variety. ~ 30% rainwater changes 1-2x per week (water at room temperature from supply in fishroom). Lighting is strong because the tank is sharing the light with some algae cultures = green rocks and side walls. Tank is small 45cm tank (~20 litres) oriented end-on. Just waiting to move some fish around and will upgrade them to a 40l tank. Room temp is ~23C GH<1 KH<1. The light is over the front part of the tank. most of the zebras hang out more on the filter sponges or under leaves during the day but always a few visible. Seems to be more action at night. I've noticed lots of activity when adding fresh rainwater - they really seem to like the current and fresh water. This is perhaps not surprising given they are found in flowing streams. There are a few juveniles that arrived as eggs on berried females - but no breeding evident in this tank yet.
