Get inspired to create your own beautiful tank(s)
Description of the aquarium:
Mixed America tanks
Tank size:
1000x400x500 = 200 liters ~ 52 gallons (us)
Aquarium decoration:
I opted for natural gravel with 3mm grain.
Ground supplemented with quartz sand.
There are different types of plants in my pelvis, including:
2 Amazon - Sword plants (Echinodorus amazonicus)
2 large sword plants (Echinodorus bleheri)
some grassy dwarf sword plant (Echinodorus tenellus)
8-9 Java ferns (Microsorum pteropus)
3-4 Tiger lotuses (Nymphaea lotus)
4x small Speerblatt (Anubcas bv nana. Gabon)
10x Speerblatt (Spatiphyllum wallisii)
2x travel water friend (Hygrophila stricta)
Der Tigerlotus ist eigentlich eine Anspruchsvolle Pflanze,aber mit viel Pflege eine
Special features of the facility:
In my pelvis, I have distributed differently sized roots and some occupied by visual stimuli such as Java fern.
Aquarium equipment:
The lighting system comes from the company AQUALUX with 2x30W fluorescent AQUAGLO occupied.
My pool is illuminated 08:00 to 11:00, and from 13:00 until 20:00 clock. Lighting break I chose because of the sunlight that. If the lights on all day, I would get into trouble with the growth of algae.
The pool is filtered with two filters EHEIM 2224 with 700ltr / hr.
Each EHEIM filter has its own cycle.
Other equipment:
Hunter rod type heating LZRH 125, 125 Watt
I am thinking on whether I get a digitally controlled lighting device. If you could give me any tips, I'd be much obliged.
