Description of the aquarium:
Tank size:
120*50*50 = 300 liters ~ 79 gallons (us)
Specific features:
The aquarium has a two-hole for the external filter in the back, left corner of the aquarium. This must not be placed outside the tubing to the aquarium around. In addition, the aquarium has sliding tubes. The fluorescent tubes are attached to a holder, which runs on a rail. This facilitates the work immensely at Aqua so you can replace or increase flexibility lamps.

-> All plants from Tropica

The layout I have "set Bay in the middle" to focus on two sides with a kind, ie a U-shape. The Moorkien -and- mangrove roots are each spread with a variety of plants on the left and right sides of the aquarium. Surrounded, the respective sections also from two dragons stones. These two sections creates a spatial effect and also created still plenty of swimming space for the fish. In addition, it also provides easy from class. In the U-shape, there should be noted that the two sections are not symmetrical; at best, a ⅓-⅔ division exists. The black stones in the middle with aufgebundenem Weeping moss are to strengthen the ⅔ effect, which for me, this effect is not as pronounced.

Is fertilized with Femanga Aquaplant fertilizer and Tropica Plant Growth Specialised Fertiliser for fertilizing nitrogen, amino acid and phosphorus.

Water parameters:
Temperature: 25-26 degrees (heater is set to 23 degrees)
Ph: 6.9-7.1 (after water changes the pH of course always a little higher, but then always descends to 6.9.)
Kh: 6
GH: no test exists, because it is irrelevant.
No2: 0.0 to 0.025
No3: 5
Po4: 0,02-0.05
Co2: 24mg / L; the Co2 supply is set to about 60 bubbles the minute.

The water change is 1x weekly. About 30% of the water to be changed. The water break acts via a Gardena water pump, it is actually intended for pumping up of groundwater, but is used by me to change the water. After a 50% water change per 10 liter bucket, I had no desire to carry on with all the buckets and therefore had to be an alternative. ; D
- Dupla Rin Foods for medium-sized fish
- Sv.B fish food bottom feeders (is not very used at the moment)

Frozen Food:
- Bloodworms
- White mosquito larvae
- Black mosquito larvae
- Mysis
- Artemia
- Daphnia

-> All the frozen food is in a mixed frozen food panel.

Live food:

- Artemia
- Daphnia
- Tubifex
- Enchytraeen
- Etc.

-> Is always brought fresh from the dealer and then later entered the same day or 1-2 days, because it is not as durable. Therefore I conclude that live food is not fixed in a plan with a.

The feeding takes place once a day rather than the evening.
