- Species pool - breeder pool
The pool itself is a commercially available 54-basins of Tetra (no AquaArt!), In which I glued two pieces of glass to separate. The separation runs only above ground filter, so that the whole pool has an associated constructed wetland system. So I have on the ground a filter system with 8 liters volume on (rest / net) 46 liters of water.
I have also separated by the discs Beck parts with U-shaped tube systems connected to the network have also above the ground filter. The hose ends are naturally covered with very tighter gases (filter bags), so although the water flow, however, can slip through no shrimp offspring.
The pool may seem sparse or even planted inadequate for some eyes, however, the establishment of my breeders ambitions is the best way. The shrimp feel with my type of care very well. To see the extremely bright colors of the animals and also to see the Vermehrungsfreudigkeit.
Furthermore, I have omitted on purpose to disguise the rear wall! The backgrounds for this form of Beck design you can read in my blog: Shrimp death - why I prefer to set up the form "breeders basin" in shrimp. Basin:
Tetra 54L (no AquaArt!)
The pool is in the basement on a Karlie aquarium cabinet. The pool runs at this ground since 05.2011.
