Special features of the facility:
Roots from the forest
I have virtually not treated, roughly removed the bark. It forms a slimy coating on the root, which is, however, grazed by various species in the basin

Sandstone, also brought from the forest
There are chunks of various sizes. the weight ranges from 6 kg to a few grams. With the thick layer of leaves can be seen but nothing more of it ... :-)

For Bodendeko I got me a Nets snapped and once gekeschert by the pond. The result you can see here, it is a mixture of wood residues, leaves of various species (mainly Acer sp. And Fagus sylvatica), mud, reed residues UNMD other Krams.Die Enigmatochromis find in a lot of food.

Aquarium equipment:
Lighting:
The lighting goes on LED Stripes. There are 3 strips of 80 cm length. The inclusion of this is put together from the remains, the whole thing is controlled parallel to the other pool via a central switch.

Light is from 10 clock in the morning till night at 9 clock at.
Filtration:
The filtering passes over a Eheim 2313 with 440 l / h. He is undersized theoretically for the pool, which at the low stocking terrible arises. I plan even to remove the filter and operate the pool without filters or the like only a small Umwälzpumoe with 100 liters to operate.

Equipped is the filter with filter mat pieces of different sizes and pore sizes. On top is a piece of filter wool.
Other equipment:
A 150 W immersion heater of Sera secures the pelvis to drop in temperature in winter
Stocking:
1.1 Enigmatochromis lucanusi

The other day at the store, I could not resist and had acquired another pair Enigmatochromis. It's a bit younger than the other pair.
Other animals should not be put into the pool, even though space would.
