relaxes the whole a bit on
Plants:
There will be no plants!

As the habitat of my planned garnish rather Pflanzenlos and the lighting that will prevail in the pool, give the plants more no chance of growth and survivor, I'm not going to include this in with my planning. In addition, my pelvis is supposed to represent the transition zone in Malawi, where there are practically no plants as well.

Did it also with a bunch Vallisneria tried a little green to integrate in my system, but this has proven after 2 weeks as a failed attempt. Thus, the theme is plants for me by :-)
Special features of the facility:
The complete interior, which imitates the basalt rock to represent a transition from the rock zone in the sand zone. It was important to hide the IR filter shaft as well as possible, I think this is well done. The production of these artificial stones I have the Aqua interiors company AquaDecor Backgrounds thanks
