2x 1m LED strip 5050 SMD LEDs


First sounds much what is to come to light over a sink with disks, but you must the 110cm to ground not forget, let's see if the plants are grown in water. If it should, of course, be too much light, I'll disarm again. :-)
1x Fluval FX6

The FX6 sucks in the water over 4 filter baskets of Eheim Biopower 240 (without pump-head), meaning thereby the 4 filter baskets serve as a prefilter.

1x Fluval 206

The 206 draws the water about 4 filter baskets of 2. Eheim Biopower 240 (without pump-head) to, say, thus the 4 filter baskets are also used here only as a pre-filter, furthermore he is of course in addition to filtering :-), this filter also is the 36W UVC clarifier and a 4l nitrate phosphate filter powered by 3l resin.

36 Watt UV-C clarifier

The Marigold Hand shrimp are bred by those who have lived in France in the 150er Aquarium.
