To avoid having to regularly honor the Zoohändler my confidence because "natürlichme browsing", I have decided on a few hartblättrige Vetreter the genus Anubias. And indeed, these seem to sein.Schön completely uninterssant for planting interested Mbunas :-)
Special features of the facility:
Following the current mainstream and I opted for ca 70 kg Indonesian holestone, and did so several large and small caves, shelters and hiding places puzzled together ... If these stones also have a significant weight advantage over his home rubble, so my decision was nevertheless of my personal taste worn.
To come as close as possible to natural Bedinungen, the basin is "enlightened" of 2x36W (T8) Dennerle African Lake :-)
The heart of the whole forms an Eheim Professional II 2128 Thermo Filter 1050 l / h. However, because this does not seem to be "front and back" enough (large Kotansammlungen under the suction / outflow unit) to this will soon add join a powerful internal filter.
No sooner said than done: a 1000l / h Fluval internal filter is a subject!
To prevent clogging of the soil and this at the same time use it as a biofilter I run next to the thermal filter nor a 25W-floor heating as Bodenfluter.
4 Julidochromis marlieri 2m / 2w + some juveniles
2 Neolamprologus leleupi 1m / 1w
1 Cyprichromis leptosoma (m) (has all his wives killed)
1 Synodontis njassae
1 Sciaenochromis fryeri (the women are all "dead" ...)
3 Chromobotia macracanthus
KH: 6-8 ° d
GH: about 16 ° d
NO3: 20 mg / l
T: 27 ° C
These values are measured with 1x wöchenlich Sera Quick Test (chopsticks).
Water change: 40-50% in 14 days rythm
1. Tertra Chichlid Sticks
2. Sera granured protein feed
3. White Mückenlarfen alive
The grades 1 and 2 are fed in an irregular change 1x per day, live food or frozen food, depending on the offer once a week. In addition, I offer irregularly on lettuce leaves and green cucumber, which also find well received.
Remarkably, the two most dominant fish in the pool, namely the Cyprichromis- and Sciaenochromismännchen have destroyed their "harem" within a few weeks. Both species were used as the 1/5 groups. With never-before-seen hardness hunted and killed the males jeoch their conspecifics, despite adequate hiding places and proven status as females ... They seemed easy to get over this loss and employed themselves "higher" tasks. Ever since the two are widowed, they formed a Agressions control instance in the pool. So fighting fish are separated, territorial boundaries, assigned and monitored a hierarchy. Sozialpsyhologie in fish ... Beautiful!
