Crypts melting, normal?

I planted some new crypts last weekend and it's starting to melt. I don't know if it's just adjusting or what. 20 gallon tank low tech on co2 on dual t5 lighting ~6hrs a day. NPK macro and comprehensive micro.

It's normal when they've been moved to a new tank. They're just readjusting. Nothing to worry about. Just keep up what you're already doing.

just clip off the melting leaves, if you do this it will redirect the nutrients to the already healthy leaves making the readjusting process quicker.
