nash84 So, after some research , the second one is definitely Aponogeton crispus , and C. walkeri var. "Lutea" looks exactly the same as the first. As Wasserpest said they all look different so I`ll wait a bit for more clues when it`s larger.

Thank you all for the quick and accurate replies.

wetworks I think that the first one is C. walkeri var. "Lutea".

Wasserpest First one seems to be a Cryptocoryne wendtii. They are somewhat variable, depending on light, nutrients, and other tank conditions.

Second one I am not sure, A. crispus is a possibility, although they are usually a bit greener. Not a C. balansae.

nash84 I does look like aponogeton crispus, and the leaves are quite thin for cryptocoryne. Thanks, now it makes sense why I could not find anything similar between the crypts

hippotangamus Take this with an enormous grain of salt. The leaves in the second one look like my aponogeton crispus. If you're sure it's a crypt my guess would be balansae.

Little Help: ID on two crypts

Hi all, nice forum, I hope is not to much to ask, as I`ve finally became a new member, but can you help ID these crypts I picked from the LFS a month ago.

I know the second picture is not very good, but the crypt has both brown-pinkish leaves , and green-brown leaves where there`s less light.
