Yes, while depth can certainly be an issue too... at some times of year, and
in some places it can be 40 ft deep.  But absolutely NO plants grow in those
areas.  The bigger issue is the color of the water in black water areas, and
the opacity in white water areas.  In some clear water areas, there is a
tremendous amount of plant life at depths that far exceed anything we could
achieve in an aquarium... but there is much more light there too!
