Tank for the 450l aquarium example

The aquarium used in this 450l aquarium example is the Juwel Rio 450 LED. This convinces with a timeless but nevertheless chic design. Due to the shape of the tank, it is ideal as a room divider eye-catcher, but also quite normal on the wall. In addition, it is possible to buy this aquarium with a base cabinet, so that the tank and base fit perfectly together.

Aquarium equipment


The scope of delivery of the aquarium already includes an internal filter. This is completely sufficient to operate the aquarium. As an alternative, however, the JBL CristalProfi e1902 can also be installed. This filter is an external filter and therefore brings some advantages. In the aquarium itself, no filter disturbs the appearance. Only the inlet and outlet pipes are visible. However, these can be completely covered with stones or roots, so that nothing is visible. In addition, this filter is also quiet, so that use in the bedroom or in another quiet room is possible.


To illuminate the plants, this aquarium does not require extra lighting. Because in the scope of delivery of the tank are already LED tubes, which are installed in the lid. Thus, they do not interfere with the appearance. In addition, this lighting is quite sufficient to operate the tank.


The heater included in the scope of delivery can be used as a heater for this aquarium. However, if an external filter is installed, you can use the JBL ProTemp E500 flow heater as a heater. This is particularly convincing in that it is completely invisible. It is installed between the external filter and the inflow hose. Through this heater it is possible to increase the water temperature to above room temperature. This is necessary for the fish to feel comfortable in the tank.

Animals for the 450l aquarium example


Angelfish are one of the best known fish in aquaristics. Especially in large aquariums you can find them very often and this has a reason. Their unique appearance. In addition to their unusual vertical body structure, these fish come in several different colors and also patterns. Because of their stately size, 6-8 specimens should be kept in this aquarium. If possible, there should be an equal number of males and females in the tank.

Redhead tetra

Red-headed tetras are ideal tank mates for angelfish. Not only do these fish, as the name suggests, impress with their strongly colored red head, but these animals also have a pronounced schooling behavior. That is, these fish, unlike other tetras, almost always swim in a shoal. To form this, 20-25 pieces should be placed in the aquarium.


Corys are one of the classics in freshwater aquaristics. Due to their behavior and sociability, these fish fit perfectly into this aquarium. Since these fish are group fish, about 15 pieces should be used in this aquarium.

Staghorn snails

Staghorn snails, as the name suggests, have several spines on their shell. This makes them look extremely interesting upon closer inspection. But in addition to their appearance, they bring an important feature to the aquarium. These snails help keep the aquarium clean and rid it of algae. At this size of the tank can be used about 15-20 specimens.
