Aquarium equipment:

Other equipment:
- Hunter heater thermostat, 300 watts.
- Dennerle osmosis plant for the production of soft water. The RO water is stored for some days in a 100 liters canister and then pumped using a pump in the aquarium.
- Dennerle CO2 long-term test (I have experimented with a home-made bio-CO2 system, since the stones in the pool, I have this taken away again Sorry, no CO2 system in operation.)
- 13 x Blue Neon (Paracheirodon simulans)
- 13 x red neon (Paracheirodon axelrodi)

Remarks about the stocking:
I am aware that the socialization of angelfish and neon can go wrong. Until now, there were no failures and Vergriffe of scalars. The Neons show previously a calm and in no way Stressed behavior.
The Scalar are juveniles. It is identified with the dealer that I can bring back 3 animals to him in pair formation.
