Fine dark sand, a mixture of white and dark gray sand of Aqua Global and Zanzibar Black of JBL.
Under the ground is a black plastic sheet to protect the glass from the introduced boulders.
2 Anubias barteri on the left and the middle rock group 1 and 2 Cryptocoryne Cryptocoryne usteriana becketti? right in front of the HMF.
Special features of the facility:
A flat 3-piece structure backplane of the variety "Slim Skirt Grey" by Stone Age design is fitted in the basin between the bottom plate and side bars. This is the planned Cyprichromisbesatz plenty of swimming space available.
2 Rock modules "K 1 & K 2" of Stone Age design I versägt into individual parts, thus creating some overhang rocks to conceal the art and to create shadow zones.
The left overhang rock is stuck on the back with a plexiglass pane. Inside is a flow pump in front of the lateral Außströmloch and a zeolite bed above the two lower inflow holes.
The average rock overhang is attached to the central bar and open from one side. This rock is the small pump for LED cooling.
Some of the rock-module parts are glued with silicone on a plastic frame and so conceal the mat filter.
The rear wall modules and the rock modules I have made even more diversified with tinting color and an airbrush system.
From the company "Water and Stones" in Berlin I have a couple of boulders of the variety "Alpenstein" Deadlines and loosely distributed on the sand surface. Thus, territorial boundaries and hiding places are available on the sandy surface.
