Further information:
Please do not rips me right in the air when something is wrong. I'm still fairly new to this area and have tried my first Tanganyika Basin here.
Unfortunately, the structure no image document is available.
I have so that my Schneckis have 3 or 4 created "nests" with empty snail shells plenty of choice and also space. But so far an imbalance m / f seems to be present. This will soon have changed so that the ratio is 1 to 1.

For leleupi I piled a cairn of broken rock. The hill holds in itself without silicone or glue. A Belasstungstest with the hose he held state. In hills 3 caves are created as a retreat. A further was built by the residents themselves: D.
The stone structure takes about 1/3 of AQ and running on foot flat in the rest of the pelvis so that I an outgoing "Stone Tongue" have between the two long sides. Left and right of the "tongue" begins the gravel area at the stretches through the rest of the basin.

On the left side I vorsoglich and to do something wrong out of fear still placed a root bound with Anubias.
So far it does not interfere and is happy and cheerful undermined and used as a retreat.
