Get inspired to create your own beautiful tank(s)
Description of the aquarium:
South America
Tank size:
60x30x30 = 54 liters ~ 14 gallons (us)
Specific features:
I've always wanted to imitate as a biotope. However, I did not want to put my 240 gallon tank upside down then to see that there is nothing for me but. Therefore, I have begun in small. And I like it quite well. but see for yourself.
Aquarium decoration:
The substrate consists of a mixture of coarse gravel (3-10 mm) and sand.
As plant I Javafarn that but soon comes out, and frogbit drinne. The frog bite but I will soon replace by Büschelfarn forming these shorter roots.
Special features of the facility:
As the local fishing club (where I am also a member), a water purification was doing, I thought to myself that this is a good opportunity to get beautiful branches. After the event, I looked at my whole waste (twigs and reeds) and have seen these thin branches. The branches were already very well dried and you could also break through quite well. Of course I did not miss it and then took that and in the rain barrel all watered. After several weeks, I started with the establishment. What are the branches, I know still do not.
As another effect I used oak leaves and submerged in the aquarium. These work very well in conjunction with the branches and are also good for America.
Aquarium equipment:
As lighting I have a cover of Home Water, from which the light is not too bright, but you can see everything well. The data of the fluorescent tube I submit after.
Is filtered via an air filter lifting by the company Sera.
Other equipment:
A 75 watt heating element is provided in order to maintain the temperature.
