Aquarium 4.0
Description of the aquarium:
Community tanks
Tank size:
150x50x50 = 375 liters ~ 99 gallons (us)
Specific features:
The basin is inserted under a floor pedestal and is therefore, from the seen one half of the room from the ground floor.

My old basin (100x40x40, 160 liters) was leaking suddenly. So I had increased incentive to implement quickly the long-cherished dream of a larger basin. The space, I had already provided during the installation of the underfloor podium in Winter 2013 in my living room.
Unfortunately, the shipping took care not particularly in the delivery of the new pool, so it's got broken and I had to again wait a week and hope that the old (leaky) pool with now lowered water level by holding. The manufacture of the structure's rear panel of steinzeit-design.at though went relatively quickly but under the existing time pressure also these 2 weeks have become (from order to delivery) long to me.

Meanwhile, the fish are fed (without losses). You can tell the animals to properly how to record the double space cheerful.

(Photos to follow) Meanwhile, the LED lighting has arrived and installed.

I took some plants from the old pool, however, was the amount that had grown there now too much even for the twice as large new pool. So many copies will be given away.

Dwarf Peer sheet (Anubias barteri var. Nana) on the root and on some lava rocks.

Small dwarf Peer sheet (Anubias barteri var. Nana 'Petite') on some lava rocks.

Java moss / Bogormoos (Taxiphyllum Barbieri) on the root.

Javafarn / Schwarzwurzelfarn (Microsorum pteropus) on the lava rocks on the left side.

Dwarf sword plant (Helanthium bolivianum quadricostatus) spread over the ground, in the assignment of its kind I'm not sure with.

Karolina-Haarnixe (Cabomba caroliniana) floating on the surface.

Red Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea lotus 'red') in the middle of the pelvis between the lava stones.

Argentine water plantain (Echinodorus argentinensis) middle left of the rear panel.

Giant Vallis (Vallisneria americana 'gigantea') left before the back wall.

Water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes) floating around the basin darken on the surface a bit.

Special features of the facility:
Structure backplane "Old wooden board" of Stone Age design 150cm x 60cm. To put it in my lower pelvis I just separated below a strip having a fine saw. Unfortunately, there was my favorite design not in a 50 cm high version, but the adaptation was not heavy work.

An XXL mangrove root of ZOO & Co. Stoczek in Halle / Saale

15 kg lava stones (originally designed for the pond filtering) grain size 80-150 mm from Samore GmbH

10 kg lava stones (actually for the pond filtration thought) grain size 20-40 mm of feed trade "Mansfelder Land" in Augsdorf

A large Tonröhre (30 cm long, 8 cm in diameter) from the rubble.

A brick with two longitudinal cavities out of the rubble. The two cavities I cross drilled to connect them. The Netzschmerlen love it there to swim through.

Several small clay pipes, but I have small planters partially drilled below.

Aquarium equipment:
LED daylight bar Econlux Solar Stinger Sunstrip Starter Set 1400 daylight. To adequately illuminate the rest area behind the root of the plant, the light runs diagonally across the basin, from front left to back right.

In addition to create a modified Jewel Cover with 55cm 1 x T5 plant tube over the left back there a better range of services for the plants.

In addition, 2 small 75cm LED strip for the morning or at dusk. Well lit at noon so that the algae be curbed is then from the main lighting.
External filter Eheim eXperience 250 (formerly EHEIM professionel) which ran for many years in my old pool.

External filter Eheim eXperience 150 (formerly EHEIM professionel) brought down from the attic and 2 weeks in addition to running my old pool behind so he could fix the filter bacteria.
Other equipment:
Heater Fluval E300 advanced microprocessor technology with dual temperature sensors arrangement ensures an accurate real-time measurement of the water temperature.

Maybe I'll even install an old small internal filter as a flow pump. Since the two outer filter are throttled to increase the filter efficiency, the flow appears to me very low.
