    I have a bag of that Akadama brand but not tested so far. Let us know how it works.

    Thanks Imke,

    I have found a site but it seems it does not translate well with google translator or babelfish.
    I am looking for 2 size (if you would help me out in which I would have to get)
    1 is for a 60x30x36 tank and the other is 45x24x30.

    Nice Imke

    Did you put the Ibaraki Akadama gravel ontop of the undergravel filter or is there something inbetween them e.g. some other type of gravel?

    Thank you all for your comments and interest

    I use pure Akadama, no other gravel or layer this time.

    For the shrimp specie it will house, I still wait whether my Princess Bee x Crystal Red cross will be successful. If yes, I will house this hybrids later in this tank. IF no, I might head for some Crystal Black, Princess Bee or caridina trifasciata.

    Here are the water parameter from day 9:

    pH: 6.0-6.2
    GH 6-7
    KH: 0-1
    NO2: 0.05

    I guess the NO2 peak still has to come. I will wait with the first water change at last another week.

    That water used for this assembly, tap water or reverse osmosis water or a mixture of the two

    The first fill was done with hard tap water (see post #1), the next water changes will also be done with tap, as I am lacking technical equipment. However, water changes with softer, adapted water would be better.
