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 Consequently, even the filter was retracted and it is sufficient bacterial cultures had formed on the filter fleece.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.
