To get a mexinanischen river Nahe, I have used a lot of big, medium and small river pebbles.
The central space of the tank should be free as a swimming area. In the left and right of two large piles were constructed. Here it was important to me that the stones are getting smaller, the closer it comes to the middle of the pelvis. Centrally only small stones are then placed on the rear wall. The whole is rounded off by Moorkien- and mangrove roots, which are aligned to the surface.
Eheim powerLED 43W plants
The Eheim LED fits my requirements with approximately 10,000 K + additional red / blue components. Previously, I had the new Fluval LED Aqua Life & Plant, however, was clear yellow to me. The Eheim is about 135cm long, and lies directly on the polycarbonate sheets. The light is beautiful white without being cold. The colors of the fish are beautiful support. Unfortunately, I also have some algae growth, but I do not know if it is due to the LED. Lighting time: 12-23 Clock
In addition to lighting:
Behind the aquarium LED Strip glued with color cool white, thus matching the Eheim. It was cut to the pool length and serves as backlighting, such as as an intermediate for Eheim.
The effect, in the evening after the Eheim emanates, is wonderful. The transparent silicone disc edges light up really nice.
Light time: 11:30 - 23:30 clock
Filtered is currently still with a JBL Cristal Profi 1501 Green Line.
Filter volume: 12 liters
Filter performance: 1400L / h
Power consumption: 20W
I had the filter already one year to run on my 300 gallon tank and am very satisfied. I have it connected directly to the new basin, in order to shorten the running-in, or omit. Since then, I measure course daily nitrite etc.
The plan is another JBL 1501 coming in May.

Since I live in an old building with wooden beams, I had me some thoughts on the weight distribution and a lightweight foundation make.
I have here selected a total of 22 drinks crates, which are covered by a screen printing plate. The base was thus enlarged to 200x70cm. The base weighs next to nothing, and was also very low.
