Becken in der Vitrine
Description of the aquarium:
Category:
Invertebrates
Tank size:
47x50x30 = 70 liters ~ 18 gallons (us)
Specific features:
- Species pool - Breeder's pool

The pool may seem sparse or even planted inadequate for some eyes, however, the means for my breeders ambitions is the best way. The shrimp feel with my type of care very well. Listed on the extremely bright colors of the animals and also to see on the Vermehrungsfreudigkeit.

The backgrounds for this form of Beck design you can read in my blog:

Shrimp death - why I prefer the device form "breeders basin" in shrimp.


Basin:
The basin is custom made - stossverklebt, tailored to the showcase.
The on some images to be seen rear wall is no longer available!
Even the aluminum frame and plexiglass cover were built by me.
- From December 2007 to December 2008 it ran as Tanganyika species pool for Neolamprologus multifasciatus (some forum members there are still as such know - picture below).
- Since the 01/08/2009, the pool is a pure invertebrate Basin

The pool runs at this ground since 12.2010.

HIROSE Volcamia Green Soil
Aquarium decoration:
Gravel:
9 kg (about 9 liters) - Hirose Volcamia Green - soil substrate (soil)
Grit: 2 - 4 mm
Color: beige-brown
This ground of various baked earth lowers the carbonate hardness (KH) and the pH value permanently. A pH of less than 7 must be set 2 and to avoid ammonia - for Red Bee breeding in pools should a carbonate hardness (KH) of 0th If the measured total hardness (GH) of these values ​​is less than 5 ° dH, I will raise with Shirakura Liquid Mineral Ca + this something because it can otherwise lead to molting problems.
HIROSE Volcamia Green - soil substrate (soil) does not contain any fertilizer additives. The very porous structure provides a very large surface area and thus habitat for the settlement of important microorganisms. In connection with the built-leach the soil substrate, providing an optimum condition for Red Bee's.
Other advantages, according to shrimp Gümmer:
- Reduces algae growth
- Healthy and vigorous growth in plants
- Crystal clear water, odorless

Saturday: Full light (rainy)
Filtration:
LifeTech soil filter STF 32 (air operated) with 2 telescopic risers.
Each riser is an integrated Sprudelstein so unlike conventional air lifters transport the smaller bubbles more water with upward. Of the 32 included individual filter elements I have used 18th These are variable plugged together and have a measure of 14 x 7 cm each. The filter slots 2 mm wide.

In connection with the HIROSE Volcamia Green soil substrate (soil) is the entire ground is a biological filter with 9 liters filling volume !!!
From Japanese master breeders a filter volume of at least 5 liters is recommended at 60 liters tank contents. That would be projected for the 70-liter tank 5.8 liters filter volume. So I'm with the ground even when more filter volume.

In addition, soil filter suitable for the keeping and breeding of shrimp, as emerging pollutants are sucked out through excreta and uneaten food down and young shrimp can not be sucked in.

After almost five years shrimp attitude I think copper measurements in terms of shrimp in my tank superfluous.
For this I ask to read my next blog:


Shrimp and copper
Feeding:
Is fed only every 2-3days.
On Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays
with the following feed in exactly the recurring order:
- Dried fodder JBL Premium Spiro Lina (flakes)
- Dried fodder JBL Novo Prawn (beads) - very proteinaceous!
- Dried fodder Shirakura Ebi Dama (Index A)
- Feed pellets (Index B)
- Dried fodder TetraCrusta Menu


Index A)
- Shirakura Ebi Dama, bag 80g
(Contains seaweed, spirulina, chlorella, natural vitamins and minerals is rich in amino acids.)


Index B)
Here different feed pellet varieties are served in a recurring sequence:
- Dandelion Sticks
- Carrot sticks
- Nettle sticks
- Chili Chrisp (dried peppers)
- Spinach sticks


For the young:
2 * per week: feed Chi Ebi rearing


Fresh vegetables: cucumber, zucchini, peppers and broccoli, salad, dandelion leaves (scalded)
Seemandelbaumblätter - Terminalia catappa
Alder cones of alder - Alnus glutinosa

Frozen food or live food I'll feed not more shrimp because I as well as others known to me shrimp breeders think am that here too many germs can be introduced with. If proteinaceous feed, then the above dry foods, since the production is carried out controlled!
Or the use of decapsulated Artemia eggs has been proven to me.

Fertilization incl schedule.:
- Easy-Life ProFito: adding 1x per week on Sundays: 2ml
- Easy-Life Ferro: adding 1x per week on Sundays: 1ml


Water change:
2 * per week - Wednesdays and Saturdays
approximately 12% -> about 5 liters (calculated on the water-net filling volume).
Ins exchange water before filling the addition of Easy-Life fluid filter medium.


Liquid Mineral Ca + Shirakura
is given as needed when the total hardness (GH) is too low (below 5 ° dH).
This addition results for the shrimp to vital minerals and raises the total hardness (GH) on. In very soft water, it can quickly lead to a lack of minerals in the shrimp. As a result, the animals may suffer from loss of color and skinning problems get. The nitrification microorganisms in the filter gravel can under 5 ° dH are inactive and it comes as a result in a deterioration of water quality at a total hardness (GH). For the breeding bee shrimps a carbonate hardness (KH) of 0 - 2 is recommended and to avoid ammonia, a pH of less than 7. At these values, the overall hardness (GH) is normally too low. The hardness increase deaths are avoided in the shrimp and strengthened the Panzer.
The carbonate hardness (KH) is not changed by Shirakura Liquid Mineral.
Adding approximately after every fourth water change.
