There are still some types going to be later replaced by slowly growing species. What is kicked out exactly and will take appropriate place, is not yet determined but nachgetragen promptly.
The inner filter box will soon be even more cases with "plant mats," I'm doing this as soon as I find enough money and time ;-)
Special features of the facility:
The hardscape was designed primarily of Islandlava and Moor Wood. The lava was placed on the left side so that various hiding places have emerged. On the right half of the pelvis a small ravine was designed from the lava and above placed a root, so that a shelter for my residents is also available here. Through the use of sand, slate and various odds and ends, under the internal filter which is currently inhabited by the Kakadu perch breeding cave has arisen.
Standard lightbar with reflectors:
Front: 2x T5 Juwel High-Lite Day
Rear 1 x T5 Juwel High-Lite Day
1 x T5 Juwel High-Lite Nature
The back wall has been extended by an LED bar, so I can hereby simulate sunrise and sunset.
A moonlight LED bar offers my fish even at night a little lighting
LED background: 09:00 - 10:30 clock 19:30 - 21:00 clock
T5 bar Rear: 10:00 - 20:00 clock
T5 front closure 10:30 - 19:30 clock
Moonlight LED: 21:00 - 09:00 clock
The filtering is taking over one of the original jewel Bioflow 6.0 with 1000 l / h flow rate. The placement of the filter consists of the filter sponges (coarse / fine) and the filter fleece. The activated carbon I currently have in there too, but coming out soon and if not possible to be replaced.
Also, a Tetra EX is also 800 Plus external filters installed. The fitting is similar to the Bioflow, only here instead of the activated carbon, a basket is installed with ceramic tubes.
CO2 pressure gas bottle with 2kg incl night-off (09:00 - 20:00 clock).. The CO2 contribution is made through a typhoon reactor. A CO2 permanent test shows the values accordingly.
The heating of the pool takes over the 300 W heater thermostat of gem that is placed inside the filter box and is thus flows around always optimal. The temperature is set to 26 ° C. At night the pool cools down to this value during the day the temperature reaches a value of about 27.5 ° C through the 4 T5 tubes. This is in my eyes also in nature quite normal that night the temperature decreases slightly and daytime easily rises due to solar radiation - so for me actually perfect.
A JBL test case in order to keep my water values in the eye is present and is used when needed.
The general control of the lighting periods is currently being taken over by 5 switches. But as soon as my hobby Checkout is something filled, an aquarium computer is purchased. Currently, the total procurement of new aquarium has been decimated with all necessary equipment and garnish my money reserves ;-)

The plan currently looks even a medium-sized amount of schooling fish off what is not yet clear exactly but probably it will be neon, the classics halt.
Water values according to the last measurement:
Temperature [° C]: 26 to 27.5
KH [° dKH]: 4
GH [° dGH]: 4
NO2 [mg / l]: nN
O2 [mg / l]: 10
NO3 [mg / l]: 5
PO4 [mg / l]: 0.25
Fe [mg / l]: 0.1
K [mg / l]: 15
Mg [mg / l]: 6
CO2 [mg / l]: 34
Water exchange is now remade every week 50%, instead of the beginning of all two days.
On the water values of my supplier I refrain at this point, since these values anyway represent only average values and should not be regarded as constant (A complete measurement confirms this statement).
Flakes and granules as a basic feed. And three times a week there is a portion of frozen food.
At the next visit to the local Aquaristikfachgeschäfts a little live food is purchased and fed times as a test.
Fertilization I do with the Aqua Rebell products, depending on water levels and plant mass. The general appearance of the plant and algal volume I refer to the fertilizer quantities with.
Since I am fairly new in the attitude of such plants aquariums, I have decided on the concept of limited fertilization. That means I try to plant growth through the addition of phosphate to limit what loud Search "slow" but to a healthy plant growth leads.
Well, if the currently prevailing growth in the pelvis should be slow, then I do not know what happens if I fertilize unlimited. Currently, I'll throw about NEN half a bucket of greens per week from the basin ;-)
These pelvic presentation is currently under construction and will be expanded to include various pictures as soon as I find time to do that. For suggestions and tips of all kinds, I am very connected.
