Many different wetland habitats can be simulated. Depending on the design of your indoor river, water flowing down the river course will pour out into the pond/aquarium, circulate into the marsh using a submersible pump anchored in the pond/aquarium, and ultimately overflow into the start of the river course, completing the water’s circuit. The primary habitats include a marsh, drainage pond, and the river itself.
