10 cardinal fish (Tanichthys albonubes), the most likely multiply even on its own
15 Brocade Barben (Barbodes semifasciolatus, incl. Juveniles)
4 Panda Saugbarben (Garra flavatra)
Part of brocade Barben and Garras still come from a dissolved company's pool, which I had previously about 4 years.
In addition, there are a handful of small permanent tower snails unknown type in the basin that I was given and serve the loosening of the sandy soil.
These soon to come:
6 fin sucker (Pseudogastromyzon cheni)
Currently located on a transitional basis even a single angejahrtes Spritzsalmler males from a pelvic resolution in the aquarium, which I will leave again as soon as I have found a more suitable home for it.
NO3: ~ 10
KH: 5 ° dH
GH: 8 ° dH
pH: ca. 7.0
CO2: 20 (varies slightly throughout the day)
CO2 I measure the endurance test of JBL (only with finished indicator!);
Kh, Gh and pH tests with drops of JBL.
Temperature: about 23 ° C. unheated, heated only by lighting
Water changes: 1x per week 80 L (35-40%) with aufgehärtetem tap water.
I cured it with JBL Aquadur on KH 5, since it only with KH 2 from the line comes (to protect the pipes from the waterworks at pH 7.5 and sprouted CO2).
At the same time I lower by careful CO2 fertilization the pH to 6.8 to 7.0, which uses multiple Dennerle CO2 Topper now works quite well as Paffrathsche gutter.
What concerns the remaining values (NO2, NO3, ammonium, etc.) I've decided that I can save just as my Testerei. The aquarium is now well run and I do regular water changes.
If the fish depending nevertheless show around shooting or gasping for air signs of intoxication, I'll either way first change 80% water and Tetra AquaSafe admit; then aerate and put some of those filled with zeolite artificial "moss balls" into the pool.
That should help as an emergency measure for all eventualities and if it does not get better, I can still leave test in the next pet store.
1x per week Changing frozen food:
Red and white mosquito larvae, Artemia, Daphnia
1x per week Forage:
a piece of peeled and überbrühtes vegetables
1x fasting (Wednesday)
Otherwise there are various dried fodder:
Flakes: Dennerle Complete Flakes, Organix Power Flakes
Tablets: Söll Organix Super Kelp Tabs
And occasionally a little Hakito gammarus freeze dried shrimps to nibble.
I'm still a rain barrel up to breed in live food.
The fish I choose because I really liked (even if they bring me the decoration only too happy mess) their playful behavior and the color scheme
All inhabit subtropical streams and rivers with mild to strong currents and soft slightly acidic to neutral water.
Except for the Garra flavatra originate all types of Hong Kong. The Garras I already had and because I like very much, they get the right to stay. ;-)
