New tank for the new year

A new tank for a new year! It shall be a tank for slightly acidic to more neutral pH cryptocorynes, tank water is as usual distilled water of pH about 6.6. More importantly, it shall be placed in the balcony of my flat without artificial lighting (i.e. making use of the natural sunlight). Hopefully the cryptocorynes inside this tank will grow well with this configuration!

Hope it not direct sunlight and not too warm(HOT). Else the crypt might melted. :P

Haha, you are right, I came home today and found the tank really warm and some of the cryptocorynes were melting / melted. I have moved it back into the flat but still closer to the balcony as I do not intend to use artificial lighting for this tank.
