Further information:
1. To the photos: all photos by gardening and good plant growth only snapshots. So do not be surprised if on a photo even missing a plant. Probably it is just down heavily cut.
2. The pool is something like run until next summer, then have to move, then should not lead to a large stocking change, but change institution. I'm here to get suggestions.
So far I know: Gravel comes out, which seems a bit sharp and shiny to me. Presumably, it is a mixture of gravel areas planted and unplanted sand.
There are still a couple hongsloi move, get the grass Hand shrimp, for purely Amano and perhaps a few more sterbais.
