Description of the aquarium:
Category:
Community tanks
Tank size:
70x98,5x60 = 190 liters ~ 50 gallons (us)
Specific features:
The Aquarium is a panoramic glass basin the company JEWEL ->
Juwel Trigon 190 incl. Pedestal (Dark brown)

As background I chose the following:
- Jewel Cliff Dark rear walls
- Jewel Cliff Dark Filter Cover

For the foreground:
-Juwel Cliff Dark A terrace
-Juwel Cliff Dark B Outdoor

This pool is called "First Try" and thus to take literally. It is, in fact my debut in the world of hunting.
In this profile, my progress, successes will be also noted errors in the hope that the newcomers do not have to pay as much training money as I did previously :(

Filtration:
-Juwel Bioflow 3.0 Filter System consisting of six high quality filter media:

1.Layer (Weekly)
The Filterwatte takes coarse dirt particles in the water and thus serves as a mechanical pre-filter.

2. Location (Monthly)
The activated carbon absorbs odors and suspended matter and toxic compounds and ensures crystal clear water. It thus serves as a chemical filter.

Currently used "filter sponge fine" (every 9 months)
The fine filter sponges are primarily for biological filtering in the anaerobic zone.

3. Location (every 2 months)
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.

4. Location (every 3 months)
The coarse filter sponge is used for mechanical filtering and provides bacteria the chance to establish themselves in the aerobic zone.

5.Lage (every 12 months)
Cirax is a biological filter medium, which by its highly porous and large surface beneficial bacteria provides optimum properties for colonization.

6.Lage (every 3 months)
The coarse filter sponge is used for mechanical filtering and provides bacteria the chance to establish themselves in the aerobic zone.

Every 2 weeks, the filter media only roughly washed until the actual replacement intervals have occurred.
