Aquarium decoration:
JBL Manado, about 10 liters

front 4 cm, rising towards rear right 11 cm

Manado is a natural ground which filters and enhances plant growth
- Supporting the filter by its huge settlement area for pollutant-degrading bacteria
- The structure promotes plant root formation
- Its rounded shape protects sensitive barbels of ground-dwelling fish
- Very natural look
Have the plant for the first time based on aquatic flora and am very satisfied with the quality.

Grassy dwarf Amazon - Echinodorus tenellus
Mini Glossostigma - Micranthemum "Monte Carlo"
Flat-leaf water screw - Vallisneria spiralis
Vallisneria americana Mini Twister - Vallisneria twisted
Moss ball - Marimo
Java moss - Taxiphyllum Barbieri
South American frog bite - Limnobium laevigatum
Peer dwarf leaf - Anubias barteri

is fertilized with:
-sera florenette, approximately every 2 weeks cut a tablet directly to the plant roots
-EasyLife Profito, every 2 days about 1 ml
-EasyLife Carbo, daily 0.5 ml

The liquid fertilizer I admit with a syringe, a day in the water. Using this method, I have better experiences made than with the weekly allowance.

Plane to purchase in the future nano-CO2 system and / or an osmosis system. In particular, the pH and total hardness are not optimal.

- Spirulina powder 100% pure for shrimp babies (a pinch of powder is dissolved in the aquarium water and added to the filter outlet, so that it is distributed throughout the tank so I get through more pups, because the small prawn after birth only once a few days at one. stay place / site and initially not looking through the whole pool for something to eat.)

Lined is daily, economical! Irregular periods of fasting is inserted.

How or why was this little project?
The pool was supposed to end up in the basement, because it had served as a breeding tank for Endler guppies.

An unused, empty pool in the basement? No, I could not long tolerate. So the idea for this project, which is a low budget project should be developed.
Aquarium, Filter, heater and cabinet available. Lighting bought, made themselves coverings.
At the Aqua Expo-days in Dortmund and by Adrie Baumann my loose projects was then confirmed by countless Scapes, which you could admire there. So ground, decorative plants and was worried and furnished.
The first result you see here now.
More photos and updates will follow.
