EHEIM Jäger Thermocontrol 150 suitable for tanks of about 200 with a power consumption of 150 W - 300 liters of water volume.
For a small "Deko-Gag" provides an LED tape with color change control.
Depending on taste, this is occasionally turned on the evening.
Especially when someone is visiting the basin is characterized enlightened example in blue.
For the CO² fertilization of a plant Dennerle is installed:
The original 0.5 kg bottle has been replaced by a 2 kg bottle of local gas specialists.
A solenoid valve takes over the control of the supply CO².
One hour after the start of lighting the valve is actuated and closed one hour before the night's sleep again.
The lunch break corresponds to the illumination pause.
When adding a pinball machine is used.
This clogging probably faster and is harder to clean than as a typhoon, but it fits by its flat design her better in the basin.
The effectiveness I'll be watching.
It may be necessary fro a more effective reactor.
Apistogramma cacatuoides - Cockatoo dwarf cichlid
1m / 1w (from our own breeding: 2m / 2 w)
This pretty dwarf cichlid from South America, from the Peruvian lowlands and inhabited there, the riparian zones.
As cavity nesters he adheres preferably near the ground.
As in his home waters it needs more soft or slightly sour water.
It is recommended that a couple or harem attitude because sexually mature male mutually tolerate not or only rarely.
The brood care in and around the nest cavity accepts only the females.
From the third nest of some juveniles could be brought up comments made gradually.
Only four of the pups stayed back.
Until it comes to disputes among the goats, they can remain in this group in the basin. Since the dwarf cichlids, it could not be too old but well be that will only show any disputes.
Pterophyllum scalare - scalar / Segelflosser
-m / 2w
The scalar is widespread in South America and populated the Amazon and some of its tributaries in Peru, Colombia and Brazil.
Since the genders are visually difficult to distinguish one group was used at the beginning of 8 pups, so that a pair could find.
As it did seem as if a couple would have found, the remaining animals were returned.
After some unsuccessful breeding attempts I could observe how the two remaining Scalar were put together suddenly on eggs.
This also explains why the two ladies their eggs can not successfully maintain - a pity.
Maybe it will be one of the ladies to swap against a male.
Hemigrammus bleheri - hemigrammus bleheri
15x (m / w? - Unknown)
The Rummy is native to Brazil (Rio Negro) and Colombia (Rie Meta).
As the dwarf cichlids he prefers soft to slightly acidic water.
The cute animals are floating active schooling fish like to swim through roots and dense planting. From their behavior they are very peaceful and are well socialized.
Since they are free spawners spawning and robbers breeding is I have not succeeded.
Corydoras sterbai & paleatus - Orangeflossen- & Marmorierter cory
3x (m / w? - Unknown)
The armored catfish are widespread in South America, & c. In Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
Unfortunately, I have only three remained of the armored catfish.
Because so far I could not offer soft ground them, they could ransack as they are accustomed to the idea close to the ground is to change or leave the remaining animals.
If the floor is to be changed, the group size must be increased again.
Ancistrus spec. - Brown Catfish
2m / 2w
The catfish is widespread in South America, and probably the most common catfish.
He is very robust and especially at a young age a good algae eaters.
For its digestive he absolutely needs root woods he can rasp.
From a size of about the growth of the typical "antlers" begins in the male.
This will over time more and more impressive.
In my pelvic size two pairs are on time a bit too much, so I'm still looking for a buyer for one of the pairs.
Crossocheilus siamensis - Siamese algae eater - undressed at 18:08:13
2x (m / w? - Unknown)
Although the trunk Barben originate from South America rather than from the Asian region and therefore does not fit into the South Basin, but they are compatible with respect to the existing water levels.
The attitude of only two animals is not appropriate, therefore, the two are still looking for a more suitable home.
Currently I have only older measuring rods which are probably already too old to deliver even vaguely reliable values.
A drop test is ordered and when it becomes available,
I'll furnish any water values.
Temperature: 25 - 26 ° C
GH: ?? ° dH
KH: ?? ° dH
NO²: ?? mg / l
NO³: ?? mg / l
Fe: 0.075 mg / l
Of the local Stadtwerke a drinking water analysis is provided for the service area, which returns the following values for the output water:
GH: 17.0 ° dH
KH: 11.7 ° dH
NO²: <0.01 mg / l
NO³: 25.9 mg / l
Fe: 0.075 mg / l
The water change is currently somewhat irregular.
In part only every 4 weeks in each case 40%.
