Das Neueingerichtete Becken im Ganzen
Aquarium decoration:
First I have a layer ADA Power Sand introduced.
It is a generous layer Aqua Soil Africana.
The basin should be my first Aquascape originally.
As you can see I do not yet quite managed:

1 x Echinodorus `Red Flame`
10 x Eleocharis parvula
8 x Hemianthus callitrichoides `Cuba`
2 x Vallisneria americana Mini Twister
5 x Cryptocoryne wendtii Green
1 x Anubias barteri v. Nana
1 x Taxiphyllum Barbieri (Vesicularia dubyana), Java moss
5 x Hygrophila polysperma
1 x Asian Vallis (Vallisneria asiatica)
7 x Eleocharis acicularis, needle ledges

And on the lava rocks:
1 x Riccia
3 x Utricularia graminifolia
1 x Pogostemon helferi
3 x Cardamine lyrata, Japanese Cress

These floating plants provide on the right side for dim light:
Salvinia natans and Limnobium laevigatum.
Special features of the facility:
In the left corner a little "reef" of lava was piled up.
A large mangrove root was easily positioned to the right and almost in the center are a small root and a piece of driftwood.
A slate covers the filter inlet.
Aquarium equipment:
I light the whole with 2 x 80 Watt dimmable Giesemann Powerchrome Midday.
For touching the sun and the LED module Mondlimulation "GHL Simu spot" ensures. A special feature of this is to simulate the situation with glaring white LEDs flashes when the lighting was dimmed down.
Is filtered through the Back to Nature system which operates invisibly behind the rear wall. There are also all the technology is hidden.
Other equipment:
The water for the water change is filtered only through a Reiser block filter and then passes through a 2 column demineralizer.
For the CO2 fertilization a JBL 2kg CO2 bottle is in use. About the JBL Taifun the gas is washed into the water.
For the control of the basin I use the Profilux 3 of GHL.
