Anubia barteri var. Barteri
Javafarn / Schwarzwurzelfarn - Microsorum pteropus

Wendt's water trumpet - Cryptocoryne wendtii in brown and green
Brazilian Wassernabel- lHydrocotyle leucocephala
Heteranthera - Heteranthera zosterifolia
Süsswassertang - Lomariopsis lineata

The compilation of the plant fits very well to the pelvic conditions and for stocking. There has been much tried by this state. For example, Pogostemon was helferi unfortunately very loved by the worm!
Heteranthera and the Brazilian pennywort need to be pruned every 2 week, but otherwise everything gets enough light and grows well.

Special features of the facility:
-4 Wood (not longer than 20 cm) Mopani and bog-wood as a climbing aid for Anubien and Süsswassertang
-A few boulders on grazing for the catfish, partly as a limit to the sand box and a fixation for the Javafarn
Aquarium equipment:
-1 Tube Sylvania Standard Daylight 15 Watt
-Aquaball Eheim 60 (left in the basin, hidden behind the Anubias)
-Bestückung Filter fleece and filter mat
The power regulator is fully turning up, so that is achieved the maximum flow rate. The flow is quite large, but using the filters quickly (especially through the filter fabric), so that every two weeks must be cleaned. Perhaps the inner filter is inserted through an external filter Eheim 2211th But so far I'm very peace.

-Japan Blue Endler, quite a lot of varying age (if they are sexually mature, some prospective customers to leave)

I must confess that I have used water test strips, because otherwise I do not do water tests. Water tests I need only for the osmosis system, so I more or less know how I have to mix, as we have up here on the east coast pretty hard water.
