I think you should yank the swords and stick with a crypt theme - you've already got a decent collection going! (I'm biased though, my main tank is exclusively crypts).

But those wendtii you've...

I interpret that as saying that the compact strain is a derivation of the stricta strain - that is, a mutation was found in someone's stricta that decreases the internode stem length and it was...

Well they're stem plants, so they'll get as tall as you let them. That said, I wouldn't use either of the as a midground plant as they can get pretty huge but there's another cultivar, H. corymbosa...

I'm not sure my question was entirely clear - I'm not so concerned whether I can grow buce in this tank, more if I really should. My focus when I set up this tank was growing crypts, so I've...

I'm all about cryptocorynes so that's my suggestion - how tall of a tank are you looking to stock? Generally, crypt hudouri, affinis, and nurrii are all really cool and do well under those lighting...

It's not that people want it to be sick, it's just that it's more likely that it's sick than a new variation, especially based off of one picture. Also, none of the newer leaves are showing the same...

I run a 2213 on my 20 long, I love it. It's awesome with an in-line heater and CO2 atomizer. I also run a Koralia 425 (had it from my HoB days) and an Eheim surface skimmer. My crypts get some flow.

Yup, that's why I tossed all the stem plants and switched to all crypts in a shallower tank - once they settle in you never have to touch them (unless you keep buying more plants and have to make...

Dwarf tiger lotus would probably work, might stay compact for a little while but eventually will try to reach for the surface. Also crypt wendtii, lutea, balansae, spiralis, or even ciliata (if you...

Ooh so many great suggestions! You've all made this seem like such a less-daunting task than I thought it was going to be. Thanks much! Will post pics here once I get it all put together.

I think the crypt you've got in the picture there is c. walkeri lutea, judging by the bright green/brown color and the upright/kinda slender leaves.

As for your Pontederiifolia, I have the same...

You can get a wavy pair of aquascaping scissors from China (via Amazon) for cheap that are really slick and make maneuvering in the tank marginally easier. I'd stick with Fluval brand tweezers though...

I think brown spots are an indication of potassium deficiency. Even if it's not necessarily the problem, I think it's hard to overdose on potassium.

What are your tank dimensions? I think many crypts could work. Wendtii, petchii, beckettii, or maybe lucens could all be good candidates. Depending on how high the tank is, some taller varieties of...

I've got almost all of those species, so I don't know if it's average or what, but for me:

c. albida - 4"
c. retrospiralis - don't have it but have heard it can be too big for a 40B
c. lutea -...

The inside part of the leg should slide off and it should work fine, at least that's how the legs are for the Planted+.
