Description of the aquarium:
Lake Malawi
Tank size:
180x80x50 = 720 liters ~ 190 gallons (us)
Specific features:
Normal aquarium with the dimensions 180x80x50 in 12mm float glass diamond aquariums. The cover is also of diamond Aquariums (Dialux) made of plastic with 3 large lids with recessed handles.

The pool is on a DIY substructure. Directly on the disc tray, a sound insulation was laid. a base plate with the masses 200x80x2 to the load to be distributed somewhat better and evenly on the insulation. The actual structure consists of 4 Ytong columns each with 80cm height. On the Ytong columns returned impact sound insulation and then a screen printing plate with the masses 180x80x24. Once again I find time, the substructure is still disguised ...... what and how exactly to be seen.

Aquarium decoration:
The ground consists of 60kg play sand in the color brown / gray. The sand has been washed in cheerful hours and washed again ........ The grain is slightly different from extremely fine to almost to gravel out. The sand was black mixed with 10kg JBL Zanzibar from my 600 pools.
Additionally 20kg gravel are decorated in different grain sizes in the basin. The whole is rounded off by 6kg small to medium sized rocks.
The gravel and the rocks come from a small source stream close to me and were boiled for safety.
A vexed issue in my pelvis ....... after various experiments with Vallisnierien and a Crinum Natanz mother plant all comes greens out again.

1/3 Dimidiochromis compressiceps
The buck is its own offspring and is thriving. The "Small" has grown up in the pool, and now about 22cm

0/1 Protomelas taeniolatus boudzulu
The last surviving ....... the Protomelas Simils Bock I had to redeem two weeks ago. Probably ascites !? Swollen belly, protruding eyes, decreased food intake and loss of control. Could imagine that to protein rich diet the animal was too much in the long run.

2/1 Aulonocara jacobfreibergi
Will leave once we find a good place.
