Location: Nature Aquarium Academy, Łódź, Poland, Age: about 2 years. Dimensions: 60x40x30 cm. Lighting: 2 x 24W fluorescent T5 Sylvania HO 865. Filtration: Eheim Ecco Pro 2034 external filter, air-driven internal sponge filter. CO2 supply: n/a. Substrate: 5-years old ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia.

    In this aquarium 5-years old substrate ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia is used, good for Cryptocoryne sp. growing very well here. The only fertilization is provided by numerous Hummel shrimps. Because of those shrimps two filters are used - external Eheim Ecco Pro, and internal, air driven sponge filter. The sponge is important for feeding the shrimps. Diet supplements for shrimps are made as powder. After adding to the water, this powder is filtered out and collected on the sponge, where it is readily available for the shrimps.
