Description of the aquarium:
South America
Tank size:
120 x 40 x 50 = 240 liters ~ 63 gallons (us)
Specific features:
It is a combination of Müller + Pfleger with the beautiful name "scalar 120" in black / beech. All visible parts in beech were pasted over with dc-fix film in marble look.
Rear window from the outside covered with black back sheet.
In each case, much of the rear wheel and the left pane are externally insulated with a KAPAfix plate. Additionally, I have it still glued a Styrofoam plate with 2 cm thickness.
Aquarium decoration:
A bucket (4.7 kg) floredepot of Sera.
In along the rear wheel 3 smaller Peat from Hagen.
30 kg Zanzibar black JBL.
Alternanthera reineckii 'Red'
Anubias barteri var. Nana 'Bonsai'
Anubias coffeefolia, probably a A. Beard. 'Coffeefolia'
Bolbitis heudelotii
Echinodorus grisebachii 'Parviflorus'
Hydrocotyle leucocephala
Nymphea lotus 'Red'
4 moss balls
Special features of the facility:
On the left side window, I glued with aquarium silicone a structural wall of jewel (STR600).

4 roots, from large to small, the two largest mangrove, the other two have no idea. But either even or Mangrove Moorkien Wood or both, in any case no African hardwood.

The right pelvic area I have amassed 16 Sauna stones of granite.

In Garden Market, I scored two 180 cm long bamboo rods and turned it into eight 45 cm long rods. After watering long I have put on the left side at the Alternanthera in the sand. Hopefully they stay there.

In the center right of the big mangrove root a root against a plastic cavity in tree bark appearance changed.
