Feeding:
I feed the animals 2 times a day over a feeder, which is equipped with various granules of Tropical and Söll.
For this I feed by hand arbitrarily live food, shrimp, and homemade
Frozen food. In frozen foods from the market I do without.
One day a week I feed anything to what comes out of the machine and in one day, there is absolutely no food.

In addition, I have a 1-meter long PVC pipe worried about that I can put food in the sand around the graves fish a challenge in
To create foraging.
Further information:
The establishment of the aquarium is still carried out not quite complete, I will this
complete with time yet.
