The pool is illuminated with LED. Here I have chosen the Daytime cluster. Since I'm a big fan of any technical gimmick to me this system was just right. Despite the proud purchase price I am very impressed by the system and convinced.
In the control I have decided for the TC 420 aquarium computer. With an adapter cable to get the control lines of the individual lanes directly to a ferrule and can thus easily be mounted on the TC420.
The TC420 is the same installed program with the beige supplied CD to the PC / laptop and quite simple to use, here you will find after a few minutes along well.
Although the TC420 Software I holds a few examples of programs here I decided to write it himself. She looks roughly like this:
12.00 - Sunrise with a little Dawn
12:00 to 15:00 Transition to normal daylight from mixed white / blue
3:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Daylight White / Blue
20:30 to 10:00 p.m. transition from daylight with a little Abendröte to moonlight
10:00 p.m. to 12:00 Decreasing moonlight
When filtering I have decided for the Eheim XL1200 and the Fluval FX6, here a small description to:
3 hose connections (2 suction side, 1 pressure side)
Priming aid: the integrated priming enables fast, easy and hygienic Start the filter
Large prefilter: for extra long life and easy cleaning in between the filter
Convenience description: grips, transport castors, 4 strong clips, multifunctional adapter, flow indicator, flow rate adjustable
Pump capacity: 1700 l / h
For aquariums up to 1200 liters
Delivery head: 2.8 m / Ws
Tank capacity: 25L
Filter volume: 13.5L
Pump capacity: 3500 l / h
For aquariums up to 1500 liters
Delivery head: 3.3 m / Ws
Tank capacity: 20L
Filter volume: 5.9 l
For enough oxygen in the tank ensures beside my powerheads, which I explain below, an Eheim 400 air pump. These features 2 outputs, each with 200l / h pump capacity. The power consumption is 4W.
The pelvis is kept 300 heater to 24 degrees Celsius by using each Rech and links a Eheim Jäger.
For a little upheaval all contribute 3 powerheads from Tunze. These are connected using switches all 12:00 to 22:30 completely random. Here are the details:
1 Tunze Turbelle Nano Stream 6015
Flow capacity: approx 1800L / h
Power consumption 3.5W
This was attached to the right side of the basin and is either geared to the water surface where it ensures the water movement.
2. Tunze Turbelle Nano Stream 6025
Flow capacity: approx 2800L / h
Power consumption 5W
This was attached to the left side of the basin and is either geared to the water surface where it ensures the water movement.
3. Tunze Turbelle stream 6065
Flow Rate: Approx 6500l / h
Power consumption 12W
This was attached to the right side of the pelvis and is used to circulate in the tank.
In each of the 4 compartments of the base unit a power strip with a separate earth leakage circuit breaker is installed in each case. If for example, 1 filter causes a short circuit, the other filter is running on.
The current stocking is made up as follows:
Protomelas taeniolatus red empress Namalenje F1 NZ
1 male and 2 females (I would like to raise it to 1/3)
1 male and 1 female (I would like to raise it to 1/2)
1 male and 2 females (newcomer)
Otopharynx lithobates Sulphur head Zimbawe rock
1 male and 2 females
4/4 Synodontis Multipunktatus and 7 young catfish with about 3cm size

Nitrate 9 mg / I
NH4 0.00 mg / I
NH3 0.00 mg / I
