In October last year I was with Oswald Hanke and have fallen in love there in his fish. Until July this year, I have not dared to venture I to the discs. Now I have but wrestled me to through. My goal was the caging of parasite-free discs. So I have my old stocking abandoned completely. Then the pool was (all heated to 60 degrees and let it cool down) with the heat method treats. The accessories (landing net etc.) cooked with. The lightbar and the coverage I have washed with 70% alcohol solution and allowed to dry. After this effort the basin was set again. In the running-in phase I could think about the design. It was clear that even parasite-free plants had the basin. This I ordered at Carmen Damer from Berlin. I wanted to get as much swimming space for the fish and have therefore chosen a shallow root. This I have planted with Java moss. In the background I have chosen higher ............. growing. On the left side I have planned a small carpet with needle ledges. Behind a Echinondurus ocelot. The ....... I got kindly donated for free by Mrs Damer.
For stocking: The discs are made of parasite-free breeding of Oswald Hanke. For stocking I've already said everything above. For this purpose there are enough different opinions ... Further trimming is not planned. Unless I come parasite-free L201 it in his fingers.
To water: In my region, the water is filtered through the Jura mountains before it can win the local water suppliers. It is therefore very hard. For this reason I have decided to use an osmosis system. I change every week 50% water. So I get the values as I imagine it.
The water is treated with Easy Life.
For the plants I have introduced FertilizerBalls of Dennerle the ground. At a nutrient soil I have deliberately omitted, since it comes after the time on the sand surface. It looks terrible. Further, the plants with ProFito and Ferro are fertilized.
Otherwise, no chemistry is introduced.
So that's it for now. I hope for many constructive suggestions and comments.
