The active compounds of the bark (including tannins) have a mild disinfecting and fungicidal effect. Accordingly, they may be such as preventive use against fungal infection and skinning problems.

The compounds of leaves (including tannins) have a mild disinfecting and fungicidal effect. Accordingly, they may be such as preventive use against fungal infection and skinning problems.
The pH is only very slightly reduced, the total salt content (conductivity) increased slightly. The water can get a slightly amber tone after a while, but remains crystal clear.

Cinnamon sticks
Cinnamon is the natural water care for tropical water quality in the aquarium
High-quality, low-coumarin, true Ceylon cinnamon from Sri Lanka.
Enhances vitality and well-being based on natural ingredients.
Protects and cares by valuable tannins, essential oils and humic substances.
Shrimp and snails appreciate the cinnamon bark as hiding places and fiber suppliers
Fascinating, reddish color under water

ichenlaub which decomposes over time in the aquarium slowly, serves in the first line the shrimp as food, but is in addition to the visual impression of very beautiful, also have a preventive effect against molting problems. We have spent most of our pool some foliage and the shrimp love it nibble ...
If large quantities of vegetation in an aquarium, the pH may decrease slightly and the water slightly brownish (but clear) are. However, the impact fades away quite quickly.
Depending on your taste and number of shrimp the leaves without further treatment can be introduced. The leaves floating on the beginning and sometimes go under only after a few days. Something can accelerate is the process by which leaves scalded with boiling water, or it stalls underwater. The foliage is not bad in the water and decomposes in the course of a few weeks completely.

Alder cones
Alder cones give ua humic and tanning substances to the water, thus protecting the natural way the shrimp before fungal infection and bacteria.
The pH is lowered slightly, the total salt content (conductivity) increased slightly. The water gets after a short time a light amber tone but remains crystal clear.

Banana leaves
The leaves of the banana tree (Musa sp. Var. Sapientum) are in Asia for many years successfully. They are there of successful ornamental fish breeders have long been just as almond leaves for the prevention and treatment of diseases, such as. eg:

Fungal diseases
Hole disease in cichlids
Mucosal damage
Bite injuries
Fin rot

Juwel internal filters Bioflow 3.0
Pump jewel ECCOFLOW 600 l / h Int. , 6.5 watts

Filter media:

Filterwatte / taking large dirt particles in the water and thus serves as a mechanical pre-filter.

Nitrax / is a biological filter medium and contains special microorganisms to degrade toxic metabolites (ammonia / nitrite) in your aquarium. This reduces the risk of fish kills is reduced. Moreover Nitrax reduces algae growth by the anaerobic decomposition of nitrate and thus promotes the vitality of your fish.

Coarse filter sponge / serves for mechanical filtration and bacteria offers the chance to establish themselves in the aerobic zone.

Cirax / is a biological filter medium, which by its highly porous and large surface area provides optimum characteristics beneficial bacteria to colonize.

2 fine filter sponges / used primarily for biological filtering in anaerobic range.

12 dwarf armored catfish / C. habrosus
This dwarf cory has its natural range in tropical South America, where he lives in rivers and streams from Colombia to Venezuela. With a body length of 3 cm in the males and 4 cm in females, he is one of the smallest members of the genus Corydoras.

These social animals feel most comfortable in small groups of about 6 animals.
Also shelters of plants or roots may not be missing in an aquarium with mailed catfishes. Like the other Corydoras species requires the C. habrosus as Darmatmer free access to the water surface to there - if necessary - to absorb atmospheric oxygen to the mouth can. In the socialization of this small and peaceful catfish no larger, aggressive species should be used. The best options are similar peaceful fish, like most types of tetras. [Roland Selzer]

Its natural range has these tetras in the Araguaia river basins in the region of Mato Grosso (Brazil). A schooling fish that should keep with dark ground and dense planting in aquariums. Thus, the colors come to its best advantage and the animals receive a plant often used retreat. The intense red color of tetras comes only in torfgefiltertem soft and sour water to the fore. In hard, alkaline water care the fish and also not old. Between not adult males and females hardly Gender differences can be seen. The males are slimmer and smaller, while the coloring of the females somewhat paler fails. For socialization to smaller fish (dwarf species), which are also in the behavior of this type are quiet. Because of their small size, these tetras are however also suitable for small aquariums. [Roland Selzer]

10 Amano shrimps / Caridina multidentata
The name goes back to the Amanogarnele Japanese Takashi Amano, who introduced this type with its natural aquarium. The prawns come from the southern part of central Japan, where they inhabit rivers that flow into the Pacific. These rivers have a moderate to strong flow and one finds the animals there mostly in the dense undergrowth plants. The body of the shrimp is slightly translucent. Are linearly arranged points on the sides. Depending on the humic acid in water, they can also take on a slightly reddish brown appearance. They reach a length of about 5 cm, and the females are slightly larger. In addition, the females seem plumper and have larger bum bags under the abdomen. Amano shrimp along with small to medium sized, not predatory fish usually maintain easily in the aquarium. Their field of application is especially the destruction of the annoying thread algae, which can be a real nuisance. As Beck facility [...]
