Hello Friends !! Aquarium

I present you here my Lake Tanganyika 500 l aquarium before! The aquarium was the aquarium Bauer (André Geschwill) manufactured and has the dimensions 200 x 50 x 50 to the bottom of the pool consists of two parts for better weight shift! In addition, the basin is protected at the seams with silicone glass strip! The frame is a self-construction and consists of Ytong stones and a beam structure as a prop! As circulation serve two kitchen plates which are interconnected with wooden slats! Dressed all frame with real-wood and dark brown varnish is painted! When doors are 2 MDF the wallpapered and have been painted in color space! I hope you like my little Lake would be glad to get comments and suggestions !!!

Aquarium decoration:
The aquarium floor was completely covered with Styrofoam so through the stones nothing is damaged on the glass! In about 50 kg of quartz sand were washed from the hardware store very well mixed with 25 kg of very bright aquarium gravel introduced!
The planting consists of a Cryptocoryne usteriana (hammer water goblet) in the right half and a Microsorum pteropus (Java fern) in the left half! The two plants are very suitable in Tanganyika or Malawi Aquarium!

Vallisneria gigantea (Riesenvallisneria) is no longer there! (just an example !!!!)

Special features of the facility:
The stone constructions from Mendiger basalt were naturally come into the pool before the sand is structured so that by grave fish no slip of the stone constructions caused! It has been used about 65 kg basalt stones and numerous other stones!

The structure of the rear wall of jewel was glued at the very beginning to the rear wheel with silicone to later ascend to be avoided since the plates have a very strong boost!

In the left half of the aquarium about 120 snails houses were introduced looks very nice and the fish also have fun with it!
