"The Guards of the Dawn" Tank



709 Lts - 209 Gals

The guards of the dawn

Astronotus Ocellatus (commonly known as Oscars) are beautiful fish that, to be honest, are so impressive to watch, that could transform every tank into a masterpiece, even if the aquarium is empty! But their big sizes and their attitude (they really are "bad guys!) makes very difficult to create something "artistic". That's why I made this aquarium, because it was almost impossible to do it !

Data:
Tank : cm. 155 X 85 X 60
Temperature : 26° C.
Lights : 2 HQI suspended lamp 150 Watt
Mechanical parts: Biological filter of 100 lt., 3 pump 1000 lt/h, 6 heater 300 Watt.
Plants:  Anubias spec., Microsorium spec., Nymphaea var. Panama Pacific
Animals : 2 Astronotus Ocellatus, 2 Hipostomus plecustomus
Chemistry : KH= 3, pH= 6.8, GH= 6, NO
2= 0, NO3= 0-10.0
Water change: every 3 weeks, 1/3 of the total.

Notes: the brown-red female (in the picture behind the albino male) hates me to death! Anytime I have to work inside the tank, she bites me like a shark!  And she's becoming more evil as the time passes! Sooner or later I'll fry her for dinner!!!

Below are the two main inhabitants of this tank,  named 
Casper (the albino oscar) and Lucrezia Borgia (the female Oscar).
