Aquarium Nilkugelfisch-Artbecken
Aquarium decoration:
Gravel in grain 0,1-0,9m (actually sand) as it is an excellent einbuddeln for it.
The planting of an aquarium for pufferfish is somewhat problematic. In addition to the urge to bite into some things is expelled by the constant supply of oxygen CO2, which has poor vegetation result. I have therefore decided to use simple plants to replace them inexpensively if necessary.

3 Riesenvalisnerien (Vallisneria gigantea)
2 Zwergvallisnerien (Vallisneria nana)
Special features of the facility:
1 Moorkienwurzel as Sichbarriere (from the other pool "stolen" until I find a visual matching, therefore at present at a total veralgten Anubia occupied)
3 upended slates
Aquarium equipment:
1x Jewel High-Lite fluorescent tube Day (front)
1x Jewel High-Lite fluorescent tube Nature (rear)
Lighting period of 10-22 Clock
External Filter Eheim 2236 ecco (600 l / h)
Other equipment:
Jewel automatic heater 200 W
small Lupftblubberpumpe (Elite 800) with air stone - The pump ensures ease with increased oxygen content of the puffer fish digestion. The hose interfere somehow a bit the overall look, but I have not found a sensible solution.

1 young Nilkugelfisch (Tetraodon lineatus / fahaka) * 07/2009
1 honeycomb Pleco L165 (Glyptoperichthys gibbiceps)
x Neons or guppies for the peckish ...

The catfish is off course when it has become too big !!! It is a remnant of a Malawi basin. Because so far I could not leave in good hands him he lives now mt the Kufi together. So far, he seems to be quite happy, no clamped fins and floating merrily around if its really dark.
Pufferfish is generally rumored that she likes to bite fins. Basically, you can not generalize but it is simply a question of character. So far, lets the small Kufi the big catfish in peace, but he's still young ....

Of course Gibt's For Kufi day his favorite food: snails !!!
There are optionally blown bubble snails and Ramshorn snails. Young snails are reserved to the Zwergkufis in other basins.
Otherwise there were shrimps with shell, mussels and mosquito larvae from the freezer.
In between there are subject to availability Mamorkrebse from the pool my friend and committee guppies (the are not suitable for selective breeding) and home-grown RedCherrygarnelen.
From time to treat in the form of calamari (not so often because make flatulence!)

For Wels there 2x in the week 2 JBL Novo PlecoChips XL (Extra Large Algae chips with wood content). Otherwise, the voracious journeyman ensures to dispose of feed residues from Kufi.
Further information:
Regular deworming with the drug Concurat-L 10% (because of the many live food)

I've got me a "aquarium vacuum cleaner" to remove remnants of the aquarium base. So I go 1 time a day by the pool -Who once a large catfish and a big Kufi has seen koten understands why ... :-))
