Aquarium decoration:
For the fertilization. TetraPlant ground material with long-term fertilization for all freshwater aquariums.

When gravel I opted for Amazonas gravel 2-3mm colored orange-brown-black.
New to the list to change the contrast to make the Amazon Black gravel to make it look darker.

The gravel is no longer used in other basins but exchanged JBL Zanzibar Black & JBL Sansibar White.
At the moment, no more.


Instead of plants pictures I use the wildcards here for older Pictures of my pelvis as development history.
