The GH and KH I have raised with magnesium sulfate (Epsom salts) or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda).
The formula for hardness increase is:
Soda (sodium bicarbonate), 3g increase / 100l the KH by 1 °
Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate), 2g / 100L increase by 1.2 ° GH
The addition takes place right after the water change.
When PH I was pleasantly surprised that the value has stabilized solely by the strong surface current at about 8.

Initially the animals were very shy with me and at the slightest movement in the room in their snail shells verschwunden.Es lasted about 3 days until they were really active and so slow the shyness ablegten.Zunächst was the gender breakdown is not clear at the 6 Tieren.Doch as digging began really crystallized very quickly out two groups, in each of which a larger animal was present (ie male) .Zunächst saw the digging of relatively useless but then a Wall was targeted between both groups coated as Sichtschutz.Dabei each individual animal in use and it will proceed quite ruthlessly, so it may well be that the sand spit is another right to the door. Is anyway a very funny picture if these little animals with the crooked posture and the mouthful through pools I sausen.Und until it stops was remodeled really amazed how the basin after the first day wurde.Dieser Wall is not exceeded by the two parties except when feeding.
Otherwise can be observed in social behavior often the males than the females are in a higher position, probably radiate to dominance. The females approach the males then in trembling movements which I interpret as courtship. Makes the impression as if they ingratiate themselves;) The males meet occasionally at the territorial boundaries for Poznan, but it never comes to confrontations.
When eating, the animals were initially very picky and are strangely at first gone to the best flake food. But even this has died down and except red Muelas is actually all well received.
I also young but I can here not contribute to the rearing and breeding behavior much, because the animals are staying most of the time even in secret.
Overall, I can I can find a lot of behavior in the literature with me watching.
Neolamprologus multifasciatus is a very peaceful, small shell dwellers with a fascinating social behavior and a remarkable performance as Graves and Beck designers.
Of course, I always look forward to your praise, criticism, suggestions and comments all kind =)
