Yep, that's all they are, thoughts and opinions, take them for what they are worth.

If Tinanti says it's beckettii, then that's most likely it.

But like I said, there is a couple of varieties like wendtii, petchii, becketti, lutea, walkeri and others that are very variable, and...

CO2 is one factor. Do you have all of the nutrient dosing covered? If there is something missing, turning off the CO2 slows down plant growth, which may actually improve things. I don't think that's...

C. wendtii 'Bronze' I would guess. There is a couple of similar Crypts, which vary quite a bit from tank to tank, so it can be difficult to be totally certain.

There is no way the MiniJet can overcome the outlet pressure of your canister filter. Plus the cracking pressure of the check valve. You may be able to use a really strong pump, or peristaltic pump,...

Sand keeps the excrements on top. Never had this issue with Flourite or gravel. Try placing a Koralia or similar pump towards the substrate to blow that stuff into a corner or toward the filter inlet.

Are you injecting CO2?

I would not just double the dosing... there may be a single thing missing, and just adding more of the other stuff doesn't improve the situation. Have you done any...

Keep in mind when discussing color temperatures that a single number like 4000 or 6500 can't describe a spectrum. Yes, generally lower numbers equal more yellow/red, higher numbers more blue, but in...

With terrestrial plants, you have to first root them before planting them into the soil. With aquatic plants, since they don't wilt, you can just stick the stem into the substrate. No need to "root"...

No 2 looks ok to me. I think 5 Bettas would put a bit of a bioload on a 20 gal tank, and a single gourami would be kinda sad in there, and probably deserves a larger tank too. Some of them can become...

Have you covered CO2 and fertilizer before you add more light? If plants "pearled" before and now don't, it may be a sign of nutrients running out. Adding more light would spiral this into algae doom...

I got my Harlequins "used" from a friend, and kept them for a couple of years in a tank that is usually around 80, perhaps 82 in late summer, and 78 in Winter. No problems!
