    Hello,
    I always had fishtanks and crypts in, but never tried to keep them emmerse. Despite reading loads of information about keeping crypts, i still got a few doubts.

    I will have available a 3ft tank in a week time.
    Substrate, which one? I'm gonna try garden soil, peat and lapis sand or gravel. Is it ok?

    Should I plant straight away to the substrate or use pots?

    Temperature, right now it is about 10C or 50F, most time in winter it's colder, summertime goes an average 30C/86F, so it's better if using a heater, this is right?

    Lighting, can I use Gro-lux bulbs or any daylight bulb will do?

    Water, should I use any pump to add some movement, or there's no need?

    Hope you can help me.

    Regards,

    Joe Faria.
