Special features of the facility:

The original beams of jewel was removed, replaced by a daytime bar and a Tropic Marin SunaECO 600 Reef White (50cm) tinkered underneath.
The LED light is centrally placed to generate right and left shadow zones in which low-ranking animals feel more comfortable and able to hide better.
Tropic Marin SunaECO 600 Reef White (12Watt):
- 4 Ocean White and Blue Reef 4 LEDs
- Color temperature 18000 K
- Total luminous flux of 726 lumens
- Angle 120 °
Also the Jewel internal filter I removed because I had to exchange within 3 weeks 3x the drive, because the impeller in each case refused their service.
For me, this is a design flaw ... The inner workings of the drive was clean in all three cases. The impeller gets stuck on the housing, in my opinion and experience. The whole structure is very sensitive.
The internal filter was replaced by a Eheim Professionel 3e 700 (2078) External Filter with 8l volume filter (4x2) + prefilter (max 1750l / h).
Running since commissioning months ago ca 2 without problems.
The filter fitted with 2 x 2 liter (volume) Eheim Mec Pro, 2 x 2 liter (volume) Eheim substrate Pro, filter and prefilter webs.
-> I let the filter run throttled ca 1200l / h <- (estimate)
Eheim flow pump streamON 3000 (3000L / h)
Jewel automatic heater 300 Watt is in the basin, but not connected to the mains.
