Description of the aquarium:
South America
Tank size:
150x50x50 = 450 liters ~ 118 gallons (us)
Aquarium decoration:
50 liters Manado natural ground from JBL
The times, has in which to look a aquarium substrate only pretty are finally over: Following intensive development and research as well as many long-term tests, it is now so far: JBL presents Manado a ground, which improves the water quality by an extremely porous surface for bacterial colonization and the plant growth visibly strengthened! In addition, JBL Manado as a "rechargeable battery" works because excess nutrients are stored in the ground. Tests have shown that a reduction of nutrients significantly reduced the growth of algae in the water and the plants still have no disadvantage, since they can absorb nutrients through the roots easily. Further advantages: The Lateritfarbe of JBL Manado means that fish are less jumpy and more beautiful colors show, and the optical contrast to the green and beautiful red plants is very decorative. Sensitive barbels of ground-dwelling fish are not damaged by the round form of granules. An important distinction to some products on the market: JBL Manado not dangerously reduces water hardness, and therefore leads to a stable pH.

- Filter support, through porous surface
- Algae retardant by nutrient absorption
-Optimiert Plant growth
-Can The fish itself "feel at home"
No lowering of the water hardness

2 pieces Echinodorus bleheri
This beautiful Art is named after Mrs. Amanda Bleher. Hence the spelling of the species name bleherae as Echinodorus and not as now falsely naturalized Echinodorus bleheri. Since many customers now search Google for bleheri, we use both spellings, but would like to point to the real name anyway.


Scientific name: Echinodorus bleherae, Rataj 1970
Trade name: Great Amazon sword plant often referred to as Echinodorus bleheri
natural occurrence: South America
Height: This Amazon sword plant is tall with good care and ideal breeding conditions to 60cm.
optimum temperature range: 22-28 ° C
Propagation: Echinodorus bleherae forms also under extended daylight regularly from flower stalks. On them appear after the dying numerous plantlets called adventitious. The flower stalk is moved now so that the seedlings are possible partly under water. After the small Echinodorus some leaves and several käftige roots formed, can be the flower stem about 2 cm in front of and behind the cut seedling. This is then planted directly into the ground and soon grows up to be a magnificent specimen.
Use: The great Amazon Schwetpflanze to plant in the background or as a single plant in the middle of the aquarium.
Light Requirements: offer much light as possible. The plant will thank it with lush green leaves.
Special features: Echinodorus bleheri is a coveted solitary plant. It is fast growing (per week over a new leaf) and unpretentious. Every few weeks a clay or Lateritdüngekugel in the root near here works wonders in terms of growth. Additionally, it should be given because of the rapid sheet formation regularly liquid fertilizer.

1 piece Taxiphyllum Barbieri
The Java moss grows emersed and submersed crawling along the substrate to stones or roots along. The pointed leaves can have different shapes, resulting in an irregular, original appearance. The fine, green foliage sits at tight branched, reddish to brown stems, forming beautiful green carpets. Young fish and shrimp found here good hiding places and an optimum range of food microorganisms.
The main stems of Taxiphyllum Barbieri are up to 15cm long and disorderly form numerous side shoots, which in turn develop more shoots. With good lighting, the branch is denser and the growth flatter than a lack of light. The slow growth makes trimming rarely required. In natural sciences and nano aquariums the Java moss will however gladly trimmed to obtain certain forms.

In his home in damp, shady areas and on riverbanks encountered, represents the Java moss in the aquarium only small claims. The rhizome is simply tied to stones or roots, where it is firmly arrested after some time. To increase the rhizome can be shared and re-staked the separated part. Taxiphyllum Barbieri tolerate water temperatures of 20-30 ° C and a pH between 6.5-8. The water can be soft to hard. With good lighting Taxiphyllum Barbieri promotes despite slow growth oxygenation, but also shady spots are tolerated, with the instincts then increasingly aspire to the water surface.


Scientific name: Taxiphyllum Barberie
Trade name: Java moss
natural occurrence: China, Thailand, Indonesia
Height: Taxiphyllum Barbieri grows itself branching on the ground or on other substrates.
optimum temperature range: 20-30 ° C
Leaf color: deep green, shoot axis reddish
Propagation: parts of the cushion
Use: With Java moss can be obtained dense stands that can be used among others for laminating furnishings. Planted at Hamburg mat filter is formed in a good light within a few weeks a dense green wall.
Light requirements: full sun to semi-shady; The moss grows best when it is allowed to rest in. Avoid planting in flow-exposed areas.

Through a clutch valve I Regulate the water, which from the nitrate / phosphate
Filter runs in the basin. According to the description, it is sufficient if the water only very
weak trickles into the basin. The positive side effect of the filter column is that the aquarium water is crystal clear.
The nitrate filter needs to be regenerated, if the nitrate or phosphate concentration in the water again ansteigt.Zur protect the resin and to grant a maximum output of resin I think the regeneration intervals for 4 weeks. For the regeneration of the filter is disconnected from the aquarium and allowed a 10% saline solution in about 1 hour from B (filter outlet) to A (filter inlet) passing through the filter. The saline I'm in a 10 liter bucket. With the help of an old Eheim External pump so I let tiles through the column the saline. Thereafter, the salt residue is flushed out of the column with tap water. Should not agree the cleaning result, you can repeat the procedure again.

Nitrate in the aquarium water is produced by the bacterial decomposition of organic substances, such as uneaten food and fish waste. Nitrate is relatively non-toxic. In the aquarium, however, high levels of over 100 mg / l were often achieved, which then may have an impact on fish and plants very harmful. The aim should be in the aquarium a nitrate content of less than 20 mg / l. Through a nitrate / phosphate filter is removed in addition to nitrate and phosphate and nitrite and other organic compounds. A particularly important effect is a drastic reduction in the number of microbes in water, whereby the immune system of the fish is unloaded. Also on the skin and the gills or lamellae, for example on the spawning of the fish, the bacterial count is drastically reduced. Nitrate and phosphate are, incidentally, the most important nutrients for the annoying algae growth. In commercial fish farming nitrate filters have become indispensable. You can greatly improve productivity by the higher slip rate, faster growth of juveniles and greatly prolonged water level periods. The conductivity (TDS) is not significantly altered. The pH may however fall slightly.
