Further information:
The pool was already a few years with a slightly different stocking (also S-America). The fish were released and completely redecorated the basin on 22/10/2011. Since the filter continued to run, some of the fish could be newly occupied 3 days after the rebuild. Iin the next few weeks are still 1 thrust armored catfish (probably 5-7 Corydoras schwartzii) and South-American. Dwarf cichlids (couples Boliv. Butterfly cichlid and couples a quiet Apistogramma-kind) are appended.
