Special features of the facility:
I've built my 2 large rear wall modules, a large side module with matching bottom part made of concrete and Fugenbunt.
The Fugenbunt I've used as a substitute color. The manufacturer has assured me that it is harmless. It makes the water alkaline highest.

I've used these building instructions:

There are about 150 Kg river blocks and limestone quarry happen.

I've distributed as decoration in the basin about 50 snail shells in different sizes and 4 kg mussel breakage.
