Plants:
Here, since the rocky zone of Lake Malawi should be emulated is completely dispensed with planting.
Special features of the facility:
to be shown a near-natural section of the rocky zone of Lake Malawi. The aquarium was designed completely with modules the company RockZolid.
Here were used:

Stone modules: A, H and E
River Stones: R, F, 2x G, I, J 2x, K

The modules and the River Stones were provided with holes and are completely beschwimmbar. To adjust the modules color they were first painted with epoxy resin and sprinkled during the drying process with the introduced in the basin sand. Some of the larger River Stones were sawn into two parts, both parts are available.
The back wall was covered with black dc-fix film to a better depth effect to achieve. The Stone modules H and E. There were attached This was done by means of suction cups which were mounted on the modules.

Sera Flora Flake
Tropical Spirulina Super forte flake and minipellets
