Second picture, all the way to the left corner is moss covered?

Yes, those are all Petites. I bought a bunch a few years ago and havent come off of many of them As for the corners, yes, I cover wooden dowel rods with moss and stick them upright in the corners of the tanks. I usually have them in all corners but a few are out to get picked at for a little algae and have a clean up crew work on them a few days. The top tank has Yellow shrimp and Greens, the second is Orange neos and OEBTs, and the third is Tangerine Tigers and PFRs.
WHAT??? Captain "I switch my scape monthly" let his crypts go so long they die off? Just kidding I have never had that problem. I dont usually have anything emergent for more than 6-8 months (im impatient) so I dont really know what to say. Maybe some Osmocote caps or clay tabs would help out a bit. Are they all hardwater sp. that are slimming down? I would try some clay for those. Maybe repotting would help too. Im sure they suck alot of nutrients trying to flower. I do know that they are known for losing some mass after flowering because of the enegy it takes for them. BTW, your latest image of the Florida Sunset Crypt is probably the best ive ever seen taken. awesome job bro!
Lol, I haven't changed my scape since 8/20 or something like that. Crazy huh?
These are emersed crypts though, maybe it is because I rarely, if ever, repot them? The roots are choking themselves out?
You should put a whole bunch of dark and red crypts around the base of those Anubias for a pop.
And now I have to go convince the other half that it is absolutely necessary for me to buy a billion nana 'petite' to use as a replacement for moss on some wood. If I never return to TPT, you folks know why.
Lol, yeah, there is about 15 varieties of Crypts in here so it should be a pretty good show when it fills in. Most of them were runners and they are just starting to put out their first leaves in this tank so it will get a lot denser in the coming months. I am a little worried about the undulata and wendtii varieties taking over even. Im sure pulling them is going to be a pain because its also plugged with the tiniest pieces of MM for an undergrowth carpet.
In other news, the 65g should be up for pictures tomorrow Along with the Mini Rosemoss and Mini Bolbitus 10g.
Yeah, yeah, sorry fellas, its been a busy few days. I should get around to it tonight I think. The Maculatas will be for the 65g rescape coming soon. I dont often see them for sale where you can get 50 that cheap so im preplanning I guess
