Stacked 40 Breeders - Emersed Cryptocoryne Growout tanks


I bought this setup from Rukothewonderdog when he got out of the hobby. Many of these plants were in rough shape when I got them as Ruko had problems with fungus, mealy bugs, and his substrate. I changed out all the substrate and made some changes to hardware. Most have been nursed back to life.

Hardware:

-2x 40 gallon breeder
-Custom Fir Stand (still unfinished)
-2x Current Satellite Freshwater 36” LED fixture
-2x Jager 50w heaters
-Marineland Maxijet 1200 powerheads

The upper aquarium is designated as a blackwater setup. A filter sock full of peat moss and Beech leaf mold keeps the pH around 5. The substrate varies depending on the sp. The following plants reside here:

-Cryptocoryne sp. ‘Central Sumatra #2’
-Cryptocoryne Elliptica 'Nibong Tebal'
-Cryptocoryne Fusca 'Kalimantan'
-Cryptocoryne sp. ‘Kota Tingii’
-Cryptocoryne sp. Lingga 4
-Cryptocoryne sp. Lingga 6 "Bicolor"
-Cryptocoryne sp. Lingga 19 "Platinum Line"
-Cryptocoryne sp. Lingga 30
-Cryptocoryne Longicauda 'Seri Aman'
-Cryptocoryne "Nakamotoi" 'Borneo'
-Cryptocoryne Nurii 'Mersing'
-Cryptocoryne Schulzei 'Mersing'
-Cryptocoryne Villosa ‘Sumatra’
-Cryptocoryne sp. "Yellow Ring" 'Bukit Ibam'

The lower tank is for the higher pH loving crypts. The water pH hovers around 7.5, and several different substrates are used.

-Cryptocoryne Affinis "Metallic Red" 'Pahang Barat'
-Cryptocoryne Auriculata "Tiger Stripe" 'Central Sarawak'
-Cryptocoryne Bullosa 'Bario'
-Cryptocoryne Cordata (?)
-Cryptocoryne Cordata KR01
-Cryptocoryne Cordata var. Cordata 'Blassii'
-Cryptocoyrne Ferruginea 'Sg. Sempit'
-Cryptocoryne Hudoroi
-Cryptocoryne Ideii
-Cryptocoryne Keei 'Jambusan'
-Cryptocoryne Pygmaea
-Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Tropica"
-Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Green Gecko"
-Cryptocoryne Wendtii 'Indonesia'
-Cryptocoryne Zukalii

There are a few other plants in the tank, including a big patch of Anubias Nana Petite, Eriocaulon Aquaticum, Eriocaulon Compressum, Eriocaulon sp. "Kimberley", Bucephalandra sp. 'Copper Leaf', Bucephalandra sp. 'Miranda', Limnophila Rugosa, and a handful of other unknowns.
