Filtration:
Internal filter.

2 inside glass chambers forming the filter chambers, driven by 1 Aquaclaer powerhead and Aquabee pumps (approx 930L / h and 2000l / h)
1. chamber (about 25 l volume) is filled with Biomax, a filter substrate with enormously large surface gesinntertem glass. it is not cleaned.

2.Kammer: 1 Plexiglas cylinder filled with clay tubes serves as CO2 reactor.
additionally coral was added. by the carbonic acid dissolves the limestone and raises the KH something.

Both pumps have a filter attachment from Schaumstoff.Reinigung takes place every 2-3 weeks

the 1.Kammer sucks the water from above, the to 2 chamber from below. Thus, a cross flow is created in the water, preventing the Mulmecken.
Other equipment:
pH regulators of Zajac with electrode and solenoid valve, C02 gas cylinder, pressure reducer,
Floor heating cables with silicone bottom of Dupla and a regulator of Biotherm with 2 degrees Night setback by a dimmer switch, 1 heater 300w of hunters
automatic water change system controlled by timer and solenoid valve.

Water supply currently 10 times daily. 1.5 l = 15 liters a day = 450 l / month

1 diaphragm pump WEGO 5 watts, very quiet with a ceramic diffuser which produces many small bubbles, so do not "bubbling"

I plan to hire another Tunze Turbelle Nano Stream 6025 to work for additional water movement.
