Default Cryptocoryne crispatula var. balansae

Hi guys,

Got some conflicting info on the net. Need help here if you have some hands-on experience.

My intention is to have 2 - 3 pots in the following 2ft tanks.

What pH range do they need? how low can they go?

Read that they need calcium, what is the minimum I need to do?

Water temp. Wahst the highest can I go?

How many hours of light (LED) do I need to run for this plant to grow?

Remember seeing carpets growing in Thai rivers.
Deep, fast streams and rivers in direct sunlight, not the shaded parts.

Calcium : no harm putting one adult human tablet per 100 liters water.

Just because it's a bad idea doesn't mean it won't be a good time.
