• various forms long shoots
• Temp. 17 ° C - 28 ° C, pH 5-8
The Java moss requires only a short familiarization with the new water levels of about 2 weeks, then grow very rapidly and forms fine adventitious roots and grows on lava stone, wood, filter mats and even bare glass. Thus, this moss covered virtually all the items in the aquarium.

Ludwigia repens `Rubin` (golden brown Ludwigia)
• Temp. 15 ° C - 30 ° C, pH 5-8
Like the more common L. repens L. "Ruby" just in attitude and makes no special demands on the culture conditions in order to thrive. Their deep red color makes them however only with a lot of light. Ludwigia "Rubin" forms many roots at the nodes, which can be removed without problems.
The increase is just as easy as with other stem plants. There are regularly formed side shoots, which can be cut off for the propagation and set the substrate. With the growing tip can do the same.

The Red Bee Shrimp does not occur in nature. She is a further growth of the bee shrimp that comes from southern China and settled there watercourses. The Red Bee Shrimp was accessible from Japanese high breeding experts by selection with the aim of breeding a particular demarcated red-white-girdling, grown from the bee shrimp, or their breeding form Crystal Red. The Red Bee Shrimp is therefore not how to read in some books, a crossover product between Hummelgarnele and bee shrimp. Instead, the Crystal Red Shrimp is the starting form for each high breeding lines of Red Bee shrimp.

Features, shape and coloring of Red Bee Shrimp:

The Red Fire Shrimp Originally from Southeast Asia, but was naturalized in some provinces of China and to the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii). Because these shrimp uncompromised by low temperatures, it is also for European waters is a risk of reintroduction. Therefore it should again be noted that a "disposal" of excess exotic ornamental fish, crustaceans and shrimp species prohibited by law and may be punishable.
