The technology corner with "HMF" coarse filter:
- Is glued with aquarium silicone. In addition, 30mm wide cable channels are glued to guide the coarse filter flow and stabilize.
- The technology corner has been cut out of a 250mm sewer pipe (natural new) and coated with epoxy resin. In the wet resin then sand was scattered. Through the sand created a somewhat rougher surface. Then sit down nicely algae that give rise to a more natural look.
I like when there's a feed for and the other a "Natural design" arises.
First, the roots were placed.
- On the left side is an approximately 40cm x 30cm 20cmx large mangrove root, which
has lots of hiding places and the view from the technology corner deflects outstanding.
- In the middle left is a 80cm wide, 20 cm deep and 40 cm high Moorkien root
which intersects the other two roots.
- A central "as" and "in" the
hill standing Moorkien root
with about 70cm width, 25cm depth and 45cm height stands almost in the middle of the pelvis and ends above water just under the crossbar from the pelvis.
This root underlines the molded ground hill entscheident.
- On the right is a third Moorkien root, which
is about 40 cm wide and high and 35 deep and rounds off the hill.
- To the Iwagumi
to complete have been inserted into the gaps 4 mini Moorkienwurzeln.
To this end, there is also a corresponding picture!
- The conclusion natural look was created with basalt stones. These are available in various sizes and shapes from large to small umpteen times back and forth has been rotated until finally the right place and the right orientation was found ...
- The smaller stones are not only used because of the appearance but also to the "terrain" to stabilize a bit.
To create hardscape and ground were 12-hour "work in stooping" necessary. Ouch back I say this only: /
... But look at the end result has all repaired!
Important in planting and hardscape was me that it is later possible to the animals under note itself, to retreat in darker areas or to hide completely. On the other hand, that enough free swimming space is available and that the hyphessobrycon bentosi can form small territories. Equally important was to me that the Corys have open spaces where you can gründeln. The shrimp need the moss to spawn from, and the TDS and Faunus sp. must be able to bury.
To date, I have seen all of these desired behaviors and have a quiet and harmonious pool without aggression and with plenty of opportunities to go out of the way ... ehm ... swim.
