Ryo Watanabe Posted January 3, 2022 Share Posted January 3, 2022 I wanted to try documenting my 4ft, mainly Cryptocoryne aquarium here. This is going to be my first time trying a long term tank. This simply in my opinion just means to keep the tank going as it is without rescaping or resetting it for many years. No big changes to the tank basically. I hope to have the tank running at least 10 years, more if possible! Tank Set Up Date: September 30, 2021 Tank Dimensions: 48x18x18in Light: 2x Kotobuki Flat Led for 8hrs (basically the same as Finnex Stingrays) Filter: Eheim 2217 Canister with Substrat Pro - No sponges Co2: Neo Acrylic diffuser for 8hrs Substrate System: 3x 2Litre bags of Marfied Trophical Base. 2-3in of Ooiso Gravel. Current Plant List Crinum calamistratum Nymphaea micrantha Cryptocoryne wendtii brown Cryptocoryne wendtii mi oya Cryptocoryne wendtii green gecko Cryptocoryne wendtii kompakt Cryptocoryne bekettii petchii Cryptocoryne lucens Cryptocoryne crispatula balansae Cryptocoryne bullosa Cryptocoryne spiralis tiger and I think that’s all I have in there for now 😅 lots of crypts.. Hoping to add a few more plants as I go. And yes! This post is made 3 months after I set the tank up so I’ll slowly add and look for pictures that I took and upload them until we reach the present day. Let me know what you think, if there’s certain plants you’d add, or changes you’d make 🙂 oh and the fish going in would most likely be rainbows. This tank was hugely inspired after seeing @Cory’s tour of Gary Lange’s Fish Room. 6 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
