Other equipment:
When I use a heating heater thermostat Jäger Company with 200 Watt.Der Heizstarb runs on a timer of 11 clock-23 clock. (In the summer months, where the room temperature is ca. 24 degrees the heater is completely disconnected from the electricity network.)

In addition to the external filters is still a Stöhmungspumpe the company Tunze (Turbelle Nano Stream 6045 / 4500L / h) .This also runs over a Zeitschaltuhr.Von 11 clock - 23 clock and ensures good Strömung.Die fish are thereby Agila and swim through lively Becken.Zusätzlich the dirt thrown up from the ground by the flow and still be as good eye taken from the filters.

3 X Telmatochromis vittatus 1/2
Telmatochromis vittatus lives in the rocky coast of Lake Tanganyika, where one finds him mainly at depths between 5 and 10m; but sometimes it goes down even up to 20m water depth. He lives of small creatures, but should also lay hands on scrims other cichlids.

2 x 1/1 Neolamprologus longior
They are typical caveman and keep as preferably in
hide rich, rugged Felslitoral on.
When a couple has been found, it usually stays together.
Small changes in the aquarium, to the stone constructions, can the peaceful
live together but quickly finish.
According to my observations, no serious changes in the stone should
Constructions are made when a couple formed hat.Ganz fast

This cichlid lives in the vicinity of Felstorial open water.
It occurs on the southeast coast, where it is at depths of up to 50 meters
away.The name "Jumbo" comes from the fact that you are deep-bodied than the normal Cypris.

He comes across the lake, in the rocky habitat before and is there at depths of about 3-40 meters Life finden.Sie closely tied to the rock caves and crevices, its slim and tall body shape allows them to disappear in a flash this.
Your long-drawn far vorstülpbares Maul facilitate their hunts for crustaceans in the sand and fish larvae in the crevices.

My example shows a glimpse into the underwater world of Lake Tanganyika.
Here are Telmatochromis vittatus, Neolamprologus longior and Cyprichromis leptosoma types gehalten.Es are hardly until free of sand in my pelvis exists because my cichlids for the most part in the rock zone leben.Dort They form small territories against caves and crevices where you care for your offspring and protect.
At the top of my pelvis, in open water, swims a troupe of 18 Cyprichromis leptosoma "Yumbo Yellowhead" .You living near the rock zone, the so called transition zone.
