Aquarium decoration:
35 kg washed and decalcified quartz sand; In my first bowl I had also such a quartz sand. This time I have refrained from the use of tower snails. The reason for this is the aim of the parasite-free attitude of my discs. There is no guarantee that the TDS parasites transmitted or pass; I hope that the sand does not rot within a year.
I ordered parasite-free plant at Carmen Damer from Berlin. Here I would again be a special greeting los !!! I can only recommend !!! This time I have taken in the choice of Falzes more on the arrangement and appearance. I am aware that it does not concern South American plants ... I hope the problem is forgiven in my pool type.

Other equipment:
1x CO2 system with overnight shutdown, 2kg bottle and indoor Co2 reactor

11 watt UVC clarifier for the reduction of pollutants and suspended solids

Weekly. Water purification progresses through IBL reverse osmosis system; This creates 380 liters per day; Since we have very hard water, at any WW 60% (osmosis water) is blended to 40% (tap water);

I realize that some of the stocking density - are hanging - as measured by the AQ-size. However, the disks show a very good social behavior in this large group. They eat and are as great. My breeder (Mr. Oswald Hanke) carries the same opinion! If the animals are fully grown, I'm going to reduce the stocking to 8 pieces.

Further information:
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.
