Crypto is my 10 Gallon tank that is scaped in a triangular layout.
This tank is so much of a failure that 90% of all plants have perished in this tank.
All plants except for my Crypts. I have three types of Crypts in this tank.
Cryptocoryne wendtii (Green)
Cryptocoryne wendtii (brown) and
The parva was supposed to be a low tech carpeting plant, but beyond melts and algal blooms its just held on.
This tank had Amano shrimps at one point in time, but with every water change the Shrimps were dying.
I believe the tank was just not mature enough and I pulled out all Amanos out of this tank.
Today I moved in a set of culls of my Red Cherry Shrimps (RCS) from Planted Nano to this Crypto tank.
The Crypto has 12 nos of Lemon Tetra apart from 6 nos of Black neon tetra and one Zebra Netrite snail.
The water params are almost the same as Planted nano and movement was easy, did not acclimatise at all.
The tetras were quite curious on the critters that were being introduced, but apart from an occasional brush, they did no harm.
So far so good. This tank has very little plant cover at the movement, but has tons of algae that the cherries can feed on.
