Description of the aquarium:
Community tanks
Tank size:
150 liters ~ 39 gallons (us)
Specific features:
MP crystal (Müller-caregiver / Eheim) 8-Eck-pool
2 ground-drilling for filter input / output
Filter output was postponed for reasons of appearance by PVC pipes to the "backplane."

As an 8-Eck panoramic pool is visually very difficult to set up, I have made after the first year, a change that should please forgive me my fish and shrimp :-)
... I have the veranda on away :-)
