Special features of the facility:
Since Unlike the hole rock, I have now decided for Basalt. In addition, a rear wall of jewel is bonded
about 90 kg of dark basalt and 20 Kg slate was distributed over the entire base.
So lots of crevices and caves were created.
The aquarium is now working in my opinion much more natural.
