Description of the aquarium:
Lake Malawi
Tank size:
150x50x60 = 440 liters ~ 116 gallons (us)
Specific features:
The basin is a panoramic Aquarium AquaTec Pausa. It has 2 longitudinal and 1 cross brace. The glass thickness is 12mm. It was purchased new as my old 300l tank had a leak and the water had nice spread in the apartment. After the appointment of the new pool, I had to order a structural engineer because I was not sure if the floor load of the old building withstands ... but everything super.

The sides and back wall was covered with black foil from the glass building industry in order to create the more shadowed areas.

There were no plants introduced, since it does not correspond to the natural habitat of Malawi.
Special features of the facility:
To keep the weight as much as possible down I ordered most of the stones at RockZolid ...

RockZolid River Stones: T, R, M, I, E, D
RockZolid Puzzle modules: L, J, G, B
Rockzolid Stone modules: C, B, G, D

In addition, approximately 15kg genuine stones were introduced. will see how that develops and possibly bring some more, whether by RockZolid or True ....
