New plants low light how to tell if they are ok
So I got some crypts and they haven't turned to complete mush but the lighting is extremely low, I even see new sprouts coming up. What I'm wondering is are they ok, how long do they need to be in tank before I can really tell if they are going to be fine. They've been there for a good 2 weeks,but might they just die off in a month or is the fact that there are new sprouts a good sign?

So, if you can, mark the places in the tank where you plant them. They look very poorly for some time and then most will regrow.
