Thanks. I wasn't sure how big the crypts were going to get when I first started the tank. When they got too tall, I had to ditch the lid to keep leaves from hitting the top.

Yea, I only have one other planted tank at the moment and I was focused on that one for the longest time. I even neglected this tank for a while since I was busy with school and work when I first planted it dry. The only maintenance I did was pour water to keep the substrate saturated and remember to turn on the desk lamp. At one point, some of the emergent hairgrass was dying and dried out and covered with fungus.
