My (ex) 1000L tank  


Now that I have a 3000L/800G aquarium, it was time to leave for the 1000L/265G. It was sold to a good friend (Patricia) that I know from our association ABCV. I still keep good rememberance of this aquarium, so it would be stupid to delete all content. I kept the best pictures of this aquarium and it's inhabitants online.


The 1000L in the living room

My old aquarium had a normal glued-in three compartment filter. To ensure good conversion of waste and detritus I had an oxydator in the first compartment that brought 100% oxygen in the second bacterial section. The third compartment contained the 2300L/h Eheim 1060 that pumped the water in a trickle filter that was placed on top of the tank. Heating was positioned in the first section and lightning was taken care of by 4x58W TL tubes + HF ballasts and 4 timers that mimic sunrise and set. The energy saving HF (high frequency) lightning doesn’t flicker and reduces the stress of the fish.

Left part of the tank: notice the lack of technical equipment. Only sand, rocks and cichlids can be observed!
