Hygrophila stricta (Narrow-giant water friend)
The Narrow-giant water friend is an excellent specimen plant in medium to large aquariums, but can also group plants are used. Generally, this plant is easy to hold, provided a good lighting is available.
It is used in the background region and is growing very rapidly, so that sufficient fertilizer is required. It can indeed be used in partial shade, but it thrives in full light irradiation best.
He gets a width of just 15 cm, the leaves are about 1.5 cm narrow and pointed to ongoing, in young plants sometimes with a red border. He also has a powerful "root", so that it can easily withstand greater heights and a slight current.
The Narrow-giant water friend multiplies via runners, but can also be propagated manually via Kopfstecklinge. Then you just disconnect a 10 to 15 cm long head piece - best just above a leaf approach, then new shoots form at the parent plant.
The same is also to do when the plant reaches the surface or beyond is growing and threatens the bulb or the lid to achieve.

She also contributes to combat algae because it absorbs a lot of nutrients from the water and anti- biotic substances eliminated, the Kings-nen act against blue-green algae gene (actually bacteria). The growth rate is highly dependent on the amount of light and nutrient conditions. Hear not grow under unfavorable conditions on about, but the plant is bright and the tendrils thin.

Shoot length: 60 cm and more
Propagation: Cuttings head. It then formed side shoots, which you can lose weight if they are at least 20 cm long

7x Marbled catfish (Corydoras paleatus) thereof 4x own offspring
The Corydoras paleatus is located in the Amazon region of South America's tropical and comes mainly in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay in Rio Parana and Rio de la Plata before. A special feature of the armored catfish is that her body between the head and tail is almost completely armored by smooth, standing above the other bone plates. These bone plates are arranged in two longitudinal rows and serve as protection from predators. The Marbled catfish is also called Dotted catfish and has a distinctive patterning. The basic color is silvery-shiny to olive green, yellowish and white undersides. On the sides of the body are irregular, dark brown to black transverse bars and dots. Dorsal, caudal and anal fins show rows of Tüpfelflecken. The achievable final length of females is about 7 cm, the males remain about one centimeter less. In addition, the females are considerably wider in the front third built as the slimmer male. The eyes are strikingly large and have to be able to retire as soon as possible with the smallest movements everything in sight. Marbled armored catfish are easy boarder that eat small live and frozen foods, catfish pellets and flake food of various sorts. In a community tank but it must be ensured that the animals find food enough on the ground. As a soil substrate is recommended fine sand, because the catfish the ground search and chew for food. Marbled armored catfish, whose activities extend to the daylight hours, need hiding places and some darkened shelters (eg roots) where they can spend their rest periods. As with all Corydoras species must be ensured that the water surface has vacancies because it is Darmatmer in these animals. That means they need to pick up at regular intervals to the surface to air, regardless of whether the water is oxygen-rich or oxygen deficient. Here oxygen is absorbed from the intestine and means expelled stale air via the anus again. The intake of air is important in the armored catfish especially for hydrostatic equilibrium and is used only under low-oxygen conditions as additional breathing. The species can be easily socialized with a variety of small tetras, but should always be maintained in a larger group. [Roland Selzer]

8x neon tetra
The term `Neon` for this very famous fish comes from the striking fluorescent colors of its sides.

Good water levels and a regular water changes also increase the vitality of the animals. [Roland [...]

Hi, Newbie am pleased since January 2010, therefore any competent advice. The aquarium is acquired at the request of my seven year old daughter. Silk beginning of the year it employs me now, read a lot and hope should get a good start. Perhaps with your help, the many good examples here have already done stuff.
Best wishes from Potsdam by Andreas
Overall, the residents go well, we are now relaxed Aquarium owners and especially my daughter has fun and interest in the fish. She feeds regularly, often helping with the water bills and has given fish names.
After 3 years in the nursery aquarium pulls into the living room. My daughter has wanted Wellensittische and for both her room is too small. Ich finds great that I can fish while eating and watching better overall. In general, the Aquarium is at the new location to better advantage.
