Description of the aquarium:
South America
Tank size:
250x70x70 = 1200 liters ~ 316 gallons (us)
Specific features:
The pelvis I got from a friend who ran it as a salt water pool.
Since then I had to run it as Malawi basin 8 years.
Work top, I have made by the carpenter. In the basin is located under the stones a 5cm thick pipe with pure geflexten grooves.
Between pools and steel frame a 5cm thickness is Styropordecke.Unter the pool I have a drain 5cm wide (pool is a 7-minute empty). A mixer and an inflow of outside (garden pump) is also underneath.
