Special features of the facility:
2 large roots, different stones, Muschlen, coconut shell
As lighting I use 2x38 watt fluorescent tubes.
To get the nature a little closer I use the LUXOR digital control.
Thus, the fluorescent tubes can be continuously dimmed from 100% to 3%.
Sunrise / sunset and cloud effects can be optimally simulated.
To simulate the moonlight I use 3 LEDs which einschlatet depends on the main lighting to 1:00 clock.
Is filtered by a EHEIM Professional II 2026th
For heating, I use a 150 watt heating element of the hunters depend on a timer.
This natural temperature conditions and optimal growth climate can be simulated.
At night the temperature drops to about 25 ° C. During the day, it rises again to 27 ° C.
It all started with a Bio-CO2 system. However, to me the CO2 production was irregular
so I treated myself to a proper CO2 system of Papillon with pH control, solenoid valve and a 2 kg CO2 bottle in July 2003.
The CO2 do I start in my outer suction basket filter.
