Is introduced CO2 plant 2KG bottle with needle pressure valve etc. the CO2 via an injection needle from the needle pressure valve in the Eheim pump behind the mat. There is first zerhechselt. The CO2 is washing over an enlargement of the main line system, in which a Paffrathschale forms, whereby the CO2 has sufficient water surface to react with the water.
Osmosis Aqua Medic 150 or something like that. Did they get used low. ;) Read more under water values ...
8x Manacapura Rotrückenskalar
From scalar, one of the most popular and widespread fish in aquariums, there is a whole range of cultivated varieties and varieties. But also previously exist in nature because of its widespread use various forms, about their taxonomic status still not much is known, such as the Manacapuro-Rotrückenskalare or Skalarformen from Guyana or the middle Rio Negro. Therefore it would seem appropriate, instead of the kind scalare Pterophyllum to speak of a circle of closely related taxa form. The future will have to show what is actually to be regarded as independent species and what belongs more in a variable form swarm of Pterophyllum scalare. One can assume a final size incl. Tail of up to 15 cm depending on the shape, the body height is critically dependent on whether there is an aquarium breeding line (usually lower body height) or wild caught or wild near trunks. In the latter, incl. Beflossung are quite up to 26 cm in height attainable with such animals were magnificent specimens. Aquaristic breeding lines, especially the many Zuchtvarietäten usually not achieve more than a maximum of 20 cm in height. (Source: http://www.scalare-online.de)
8x Geophagus "Red Head" Tapajos
The Geophagus spec Red Heads are floating happily. Therefore, I recommend a pool length of min. 120 cm for a pair (Arthaltung), for group housing and community tank larger aquarium from 150X50X50cm. The aquarium should be either hiding rich furnishings, as well as free swimming areas included. For decoration are, inter alia roots and rocks. Planting with robust plants possible, which are secured against dig, eg by larger pebbles. The best location is a border and background planting. Ground with very fine gravel or sand. This is important because they flush their gills with the sand. If the gravel is too coarse, it will spit out again, he is fine enough, then it trickles through the gills by. Thus, they also take on food and keep away annoying parasites such as gill flukes.
For the well-being is also a flow of advantage in which they like to stay. For Aquarium attitude, no special requirements on the chemical composition of water, asked. PH value of 5.5-8, total hardness to about 20 °. Softer water makes for beautiful colors but, therefore recommended. Change water regularly, with me all the intervals 2weeks are 60% of the total. Oxygenated water. In nature they are found in soft, slightly acidic water. Not too cool, because they are heat-loving. 25-27 ° C (in winter) and in the summer of 27-31 ° C. There are omnivores. They eat any common flake and granulated foods, frozen and vibrant insect larvae, daphnia, brine shrimp, krill, Mysis, etc. But also green fodder is important for healthy eating, such as peas, spinach, spirulina, etc. They are in the middle and lower water region to find. There are peaceful lively South American cichlids. Intraspecific little aggressive. They can be very good with smaller (from Schmucksalmlergröße) and larger fish (not to be dominant) socialize. The fish are very buoyant and happy so they should also be kept in rather elongated Aquarium. For peace-loving fish can be hectic, especially on narrow space. (Source: americanfish.de)
4x butterfly cichlid:
This fish preferred weedy waters hiding, stones and enough free swimming space in which he also finds free space for applying the redds. The gender (the wild varieties) are easily distinguished (in degenerate offspring this difference is missing - features often, so sexing is often impossible). Regular partial water changes, a dense patch and the optimal filter hygiene are very important for the well-being of these fish! M. ramirezi takes next to each type of dried fodder, as well as freeze-dried and frozen food also like live food as food to.

Since I started working with osmosis water, no longer vary my water values. I can achieve through the mix and blend in 1x 210l and 1x310l rain barrels for me exactly the desired water values. The water is therein heated to 27 ° C and then pumped with a delivery pump in the pool.
The previous alternative rainwater had in addition to the fluctuating water levels and the cool water temperature additional risk involves the change of water that any heavy metals or otherwise. Poisonings come unconsciously into the aquarium. Of course osmosis water is a little pricey, but that can not stop me, I want to offer my animals the best possible habitat.
In the morning:
Flakes JBL Gala
Granulate JBL Grana
JBL Novo daphnia dried (between)
In the evening:
Frozen food red, white or black mosquito larvae (depending on variety)
JBL Novo Pleco XL
Cucumbers, lettuce or spinach (depending on variety)
It is 2 x per day fed, which can be destroyed in 2-3 minutes.
Catfish are fed short (10-15min) before turning off the main lighting.
I have very long filed in the project. From planning to implementation passed an eternity for me. I have me satisfied with this project, even if it is not yet quite finished a dream.
I hope you like what has arisen here and one or the other finds an inspiration in what I've done, or simply as I delight in the beautiful result.
