As a small feature in my pelvis, the filter is to be counted on. Unfortunately, my filters are the Wassereinströmöffnungen not just fighting fish do justice (to grobmaschig). The fight male fish had already fear for his life, or rather to its fins, when I first put it times in this pool - luckily nothing happened!

When protection is now a converted Swat as guard (the white grid in front of the filter)! ^ _ ^

Many eyebrows now be going up when they read held a catfish in such a small pool. I can reassure you I am no animal torturers! ^ _ ^ The catfish is long even in miniature, and just 2.5 cm. As soon as he is somewhat greater, he may like to a larger pool.

At the Kampffisch pair I would also like to say a few words. In the beginning only the females in the tank and the male was should briefly to mate with inside.
A pairing has not occurred, but the two have become quite good friends. Between the two there is not even a hint of aggression. Both swim through pools and do their thing. No one follows the other, eat together, swim together and rounds from &. at times they even sleep next to each other. ^ _ ^

Further information:
This basin has been active since March 05. 2011th The pool had a 25 gallon tank as a precursor, which has been run for several months. It was sporadig set up because it served only to snail farming. Consequently, even the filter was retracted and it is sufficient bacterial cultures had formed on the filter fleece. For this reason I was able to increase the stocking so soon after buying Beck quickly.
