Aquarium decoration:
A third of the sand by a terrace of fine gravel (1-3 mm) is separated. The sand is relatively bright as the pebble actually, only because I have mixed a brown color gravel.
We'll see eventually I wanted to change in a train with the Cabinet change on sand.
I had already once completely sand, but since I had a very short time more problems with algae and plants hardly grew. Well, and on the tower used snails to floor care rejoiced the loach, all of which were brought to light and eaten. Now the loaches were able to take off in a bigger Becke and then I could try it again with sand.
But since I wanted only to read through the testimonials. For Dronaugen and Kakadu dwarf cichlids, it would be nice for sure.

The leaves are narrow lanceolate to linear, highly bullos, light to dark green. The leaf blade is long and 2 to 5 cm wide and 80 cm. The spathe of the inflorescence grows from the bottom up to the water surface and opens there. The stalk of the inflorescence can involve stretching to a length of about 10 to 15 cm and the boiler to a length of 25 cm. The spathe is externally reddish and white inside. The surface is smooth. A collar is missing. The fruit develops on the top of the inflorescence stem underwater. Because while ripping the leaves microscopically fine needle crystals of calcium oxalate are released into the water, causing an itch in contact with skin. The fish eat the plants not about to. Propagation is through foothills. Source: Home biotope

10 Pangio kuhlii sumatranus (Dornauge) courtship behavior on 03/07/2013
Origin: Southeast Asian space
Size: 10-12cm
Females: a little plumper, roundish pectorals, spawn shimmering greenish belly
Males: slender, crescent-shaped pectoral fins
Recommended water values: temperature 24-29 ° C; pH 5.5-7; GH 5-15
The name Dornauge comes from the fact that these fish a small thorn unetr the eye has serving as a defensive weapon. It is a very peaceful fish. For me they are all over the aquarium on the go, but most like the pile of leaves. They also are looking for daytime for food.

43 Paracheirodon axelrodi (Red Neon)
Origin: from Venezuela via Colombia to Brazil, clear soothing waters
Size: 4-5cm
Females: a little plumper
Males: slightly slimmer
Recommended water values: temperature 23-27 ° C; pH 5-6.5; GH 3-12
For me they are often traveling alone, a swarm is only after feeding and when in front of the Aquarium's bustle, formed.

7 Otocinclus macrospilus (ear grating catfish)
Origin: Amazon Basin often in dense vegetation
Size: 4-5cm
Females: a few mm longer and fuller abdominal region
Males: meißt slightly smaller
Recommended water values: temperature 23-27 ° C; pH 6.0 -7.8; GH 2-18
Hard-working fellows who can hide very well. I see me rarely all at the same time. In my opinion, a bit difficult as regards feeding. I once had two that were very poor and which nevertheless did not go to food tablets or vegetables. Solangsam adopt pumpkin chips, but even that has lasted very long.

1Männchen and 2 females Apistogramma cacatuoides (Cockatoo dwarf cichlid) offspring on 03/12/2013
Home: small waters of the Amazon Basin
Size: 5-9cm
Bitches: about 5cm, plain colored, in readiness to spawn stained yellow with black stripe
Males: 9cm, strikingly colored colorful, front fin rays verlänget similar to the hood of an cockatoo, they are placed in courtship or to threaten
Recommended water values: temperature 24-27 ° C; pH 6-7.5; GH 5-19
The attitude so far I do not think so simply because it still often comes to wrangling. I hope I can fix this by a slight Conversely the seminars. Perhaps versa some rest if a better coalfields can be staked.
The association with red neon and pangio in my eyes is unproblematic and actually works very well so far.

Next species will no longer move.
Yes, and how could it be otherwise, I also have countless bladder snails, despite that I everything is always so feed it well right away. And I collect a week felt 50 pieces, out from large to small.
