Specific features:
The pool has been running since 07.09.2012. First with normal sand but since they have formed biogases and then had the bees, who then lived in it, move. Then I loaded the basin with the ADA Amazonia. And so it now runs since 05.10.2012

I've made this new profile, because I knew the old slow even more net what was where;)

I have dissolved the pool today because I have probably some wines Bacterial thing. The animals are now in a quarantine tank. The survive the coming then into the newly established 54l tank.

Heteranthera zosterifolia

Heteranthera zosterifolia is a beautiful stem plant with bright green, lance-shaped leaves. In their home country Brazil it usually grows in still water and in marshy regions.

In aquatics H. zosterifolia is already known for many years, has now established a firm place and is used both for the design of Holland aquariums as well as in natural aquariums. Here it can be used as a contrast plant both in the foreground, middle ground and background of the aquarium, where it can be cut back by simply cutting to the desired height.

The Seegrasblättrige heteranthera, the German name of the plant, is an excellent indicator of water. With a lack of nitrogen (NO3) their leaves begin to become transparent before they wither. Alter the water phosphorus (PO 4), the bright green of the plant turns into a darker shade.

H. zosterifolia is not a demanding plant and grows well at moderate light intensity without CO2 gifts. However, its full potential it is only when strong lighting and CO2 fertilization with intense growth and larger leaves. Excluding grow up to the surface, often form pretty blue flowers.

Height: 10-50 cm
Width: 10-15 cm
Temperature: 18-30 ° C
pH tolerance: 5-8
Hardness tolerance: very soft to hard

Alternanthera reineckii rosaefolia

The purple undersides of leaves of Alternanthera reineckii "rosaefolia" form an effective contrast to the many green plants, especially when planted in groups. High light intensity promotes the red coloring of the leaves. Most Alternanthera species are difficult in the aquarium, but this kind is quite unpretentious. You can easily multiply by planting his head cuttings in the ground. This also makes the mother plant more bushy, because it then makes several new side shoots.

Occurrence: The Alternanthera reineckii 'Pink' (rosaefolia) comes from South America.
Height: Alternanthera reineckii 'Pink' (rosaefolia) is 25 - 50cm high and 10-15cm wide.
Temperature range: 17-28 ° C
Light requirements: in well-lit places, the Alternanthera reineckii 'Pink' grows (rosaefolia) best. With a lack of light, they tried to leave the water in the direction of the light source, which means that the internodes, so the distances between [...]
