Little Help: ID on two crypts
2 Attachment(s)
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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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

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.
