Special features of the facility:
The rear wall

"Basic" 3D back wall (stone homecooked)

Main features are as follows, the back panel is not glued but simply stands in the water of polyester resin in a basalt slate structure, the structure depth is between 1 and 3 cm.

This was completely coated with epoxy resin, which then came to beige and dark brown sand, to the whole Querbeet is mixed and produces light and dark places.
What the homecooked should suggest more explicit.

Furthermore, the lower portion of the rear wall of the entire length was also pretreated with epoxy resin, while a 3 to 4 cm high sand layer is incorporated into the epoxy resin in 2tem step in this area can be seen on the upper sand line and to the whole flowing into the back wall integrated.
The effect is a light optical achieve lifting of sand.


15 kg Rhine gravel actually rather quite large boulders from 4 to about 25 cm, different colors.

These 3 modules I've even edited and can also be used as a hiding place.

Some branches of the beech, as well as a larger piece of wood "Moorkie" which diverse deciduous oak, beech is about to maple on the ground liegt.Ebenso indiscriminately vertreut in the basin.

The design of the rear panel, you can read here for: "remodel Simple backplane"


A river in the typical ambience of this species, stone landscape with exquisite plants and some wood and Ästen.ebenso shadow zones, Cairn for Notropis chrosomus and etheostoma should be the main focus here.

The pool is operated without heating.

That was to operate an aquarium without heating my intension, this fascination is quite simple thought but absolutely thrilling, the animals show their absolutely natural color noise during courtship and the decoration is absolutely enthusiastic.

Although the cost of savings by eliminating served with a little when considering but this was not the main factor.

Many aquarists eighth on the money and now I represent the opinion of the basin this division provides a wonderful alternative in which everything is offered, also without heating in the aquarium.

I hope that here is some advance in this world and themselves try it!
