Feeding until 14/06/2009:

Now I feed my fish on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays .... I think that this is a better solution, I'm previously came with my other feeding method always messed up ... !!!

Hi and have a nice day ... !!!

A brief description of the construction and decoration:

In the rear area, I have a Vallisnerien forest set of soll.Die offer enough protection and shelter for my Scalar and also for Salmer plants should flutend are in the flow and my Scalar take this to excellent.

The back wall is provided in the pointed curve with openings and provides the catfish also the opportunity to swim behind this. This is very well accepted.

In the middle part of the basin, I have a large Cryptocoryne aponogeti Folia MERRIL gesetzt.Einen offshoot of this plant I have put in the right front area of ​​the pelvis and the Echinodorus Ocelot is dahinter.Die Echinodorus Ocelot is my scalars as possible spawning grounds.
The largest of the three pagodas stones I have positioned the left of the middle pelvic region. The flat stone pagodas in the middle and the middle-sized pagodas stone in the right part of the basin between Cryptocoryne aponogeti Folia MERRIL and Echinodorus Ocelot ...

In the front area the Cryptos were. set as they do not grow so high. The aim should be to achieve a gradation of plants from back to front.

The inlet is centered precisely in the top of the pelvis, the process is also set centrally between the rear walls.

.................................................. .......
Time and again in conversation: Scalar and neon !!! For me it was so that I had the Neonsschwarm first and then came the Scalar it; ie both types grew up together; works fine and there were no losses.

And finally, look forward to advice and comments from all of you, and give you also like my mustard to your pool from.

The most important:
There should always be fair and not be anything Offensive, I am not too !!!

So I'm looking forward to your suggestions and comments
