Biotop im Planschbecken / biotope in the splash pool

Heute haben wir endlich das Planschbecken, das seit August mit Wasser gefuellt im Garten stand, saubergemacht und weggeraeumt. Ueber die letzten Wochen hatte sich einiges im Planschbecken angesiedelt – der Boden war mit Algen bedeckt, und im Wasser wimmelte es von Larven (leider habe ich davon kein Bild gemacht).

Aber ich habe ein paar Wasserproben genommen, damit wir uns das ganze genauer angucken konnten (mit Lupe!). Gefunden haben wir Zuckmueckenlarven, Stechmueckenlarven, und eine Faltenmueckenlarve.

We finally cleaned and put away the splash pool that had been standing in the garden since August. Over time, a small ecosystem develop in the pool – the floor was covered in algae, and larvae of mosquitoes and other insects were abound (unfortunately, I did not take a photo of this).

But I took a water sample, so that we could look at this in more detail (and with a magnifying glass). We found phantom crane fly larvae, mosquito larvae, and midge larvae.

Das schwamm alles im Wasser.
