This plant has long been introduced in the aquarium hobby. Their scientific description has been made, however, only by Rataj in 1970. Through a grammatical error she became known as Echinodorus bleheri. But it was not in honor of Mrs. Amanda Bleher, the owner of the company Lotus Osiris, named is their correct scientific name Echinodorus bleherae. Before that, she was traded commercially as a result of misidentification as E. paniculatus and known in circles aquarists also under this name. In the latest revision of Haynes and Holm-Nielsen was however drafted as a distinct species and set grisebachii into the hunt group E., similar to their closest relatives E. amazonicus and E. parviflorus. The reason was cited, among other things, that Rataj has determined this plant is not by natural herbarium material from one collection contained, but for cultivated specimens of the then already widespread aquarium culture and as a type specimen chose only one plant without inflorescence. Because you could not understand the initial deployment, the home of this plant is not exactly known. Presumably, it is the middle South America, including the Amazon Basin.
H. corymbosa `Siamensis` is a beautiful plant for the medium- to background of an aquarium. However, it is growing very rapidly and therefore requires regular socket. By separating and Neustecken the shoot tips can reproduce them easily; if they only removed the tip, can their rapid growth in height stop something and achieve a denser growth, since they then drives many side shoots - in addition to those they already formed that way. A terraced grouping different length stems looks very sexy.
Particularly useful is H. corymbosa `Siamensis` for thematically oriented to Asia aquarium or Biotop pool, where it can make for a nice atmosphere with Cryptocoryne species and swarm forming cyprinids as Trigonostigma espei or T. heteromorpha.
Rotala rotundifolia is a classic representative of the aquarium plants. She has a wide distribution in South, Southeast and East Asia, where it grows in swamps, on Bach edges and in rice fields from the lowlands up to an altitude of 2700 meters above sea level. Along with rice seed was introduced into the southern United States, where it is now spreading well.
Hygrophila polysperma sunset
Hydrophila polysperma "Sunset", or "Pink Annoying" has its origins in the Danish aquatic plant nursery Tropica. A special feature of this plant are often white-colored veins. It is not a lack of nutrients, but it is believed that a virus prevents the production of chlorophyll in the surrounding tissue. This virus is specialized solely on this variety and thus does not constitute a danger to the other aquarium. This variation of the well-known, robust H. polysperma which has its origins in Asia, has become a very popular aquarium plant.
Cryptocoryne wendtii "tropica"
Wendt`s Wasserkelch `Tropica`
Variety, which originated in the nursery "Tropica", Denmark. In contrast to the primary form, this variety has strong hammered and broader leaves.
His hammered leaves are colored deep green to dark brown. Wendt's water trumpet "Tropica" is very unassuming and is less prone to "Cryptocoryne rot" than other Cryptocoryne species.

The beautiful and rugged floating plant Ceratopteris cornuta, also referred to as Hornfarn, is a relatively rare aquarium plant. Ceratopteris submersed and emersed forms from two completely different leaf shapes. While the emersed grown leaves are feinfiedrig and remember Möhrenkraut, underwater and floating leaves appear large area with numerous adventitious to the leaf margins. That is also the reason why there are often confusion between the different species. Most offered as Ceratopteris cornuta plants actually belong to the related species C. thalictroides. The taxonomically not so interested aquarist [...]
Special features of the facility:
Moorkien Wood Root
2 large root where as a "tree" acts under water. The Java moss was untied from me to the roots.
The also very commonly used in Japanese Nature Aquarium "OHKO stone", is characterized mainly by the many larger holes and his rough appearance.
Ideally suited for the design of aquariums in "Takashi Amano style" and to build reef aquariums.

Rainbow Fish habitat
10stk. Melanotaenia splendida australis
It is probably the most common Regenbogenfisch Australia and perhaps the most adaptable species.
This type occurs mainly in rivers in Western Australia and the Northern Territory in northwest Australia.
Trichogaster leerii (pearl gourami) 1/1
The pearl gourami is from Malaysia, Thailand, Borneo and Sumatra. He lives there with no water flow, or oxygen-deficient rice fields, through its special breathing organ (labyrinth), he can survive there. He was first in 1852 by the Dutch naturalist Pieter Bleeker.
Hoplosternum littorale 5X
Is very similar to thoracatum. Only his steeper forehead and his Zeichnug differ.
Intraspecific the catfish are very compatible. At spawning times can lead to tussles with species-specific as well as with alien fish. Otherwise alien fish are largely ignored.
Atyopsis moluccensis 4stk. 1/3 (Moluccas Shrimp)
Very peaceful shrimp suitable by your height up to 10 cm in the males of many species tanks. They can be kept with other shrimps and peaceful, not predatory fish. Also the first pair of legs transformed into subjects, but are the first walking legs strong - When the male is not - as in females. Until accessible to 12 years age is not uncommon.

Bacteria are also the reason why the product has it's characteristic purple / red color.
These photosynthetic bacteria take ecologically seen the same space as the algae
and the competition in that they deprive the algae of their food. Since these bacteria
are photosynthetic, they can even do their job in very nutrient-poor basins without

Feeding these bacteria is therefore not absolutely necessary. A significant advantage over
most other bacteria filters available on the market.
They decided against cyano-bacteria in general through better since it also the light
