wow... I haven't update this thread over 1 month.
Quick update: I have been super busy with work and getting my house ready to be put on the market. All my tanks have been neglected. Everything is over grown and some algaes have developed. The tank is not really presentable right now. I need to off load lots of plants to get ready for the upcoming move.
Now I know why I never got into stem plants... too much maintenance!!! or they will take over your tank!!!
Sadly, I have officially lost all my C. Flamingo
Good news is I have tons of baby crypts to offer to everyone after one month or so of neglect.
