    Those heckles are really gorgeous, you grown them well. What is your water changing regime, what do you feed them and whats your lightning. You use pure RO?

    Thanks all!

    Yes, I am using pure RO, stored in tank in the cabinet under main tank. Heated to 29 degrees. Sometime I add Humins from Discusfood in the water. Change is cca 200 liters every two weeks. I am using clearwater resins in the sump.

    For 350 gallon tank I have in plan to add 6 more Heckels. 12 pcs in 230 cm tank will be more then enough, especially when they mature. I will add some branchees and roots soon.

    I change cca 30 percent every two weeks, sometime longer.
    I feed them 4-5 times per day with frozen larvae (black, white or red), artemia, some shell mix. They dont want to eat granulated dry food. Only spirulina flakes.

    I have just 2 x70 cm led strips with controller to simulate early morning and evening. Will add 15-20 Watts T5 soon because I have some red lotus in the tank. They are not biotopic, but are great for making shadows for the fish.

    I hope they will grow more during next year
