Thanks...I think I have found the right Rosanervig strain that will keep the "vein" look growing submerged. They are not as pretty as emersed specimens but still very stunning.

I have noticed that too. Also noticed there is a breaking point for them. If there is too much neglect, then extreme melting occurs and crypts are lost.

Thanks If everything is working the way I have it planned. The tank should bounce back in a couple of months or less. Fingers crossed...

I love root tabs... They are extremely effective for crypts!

Cool! Let's see some pleco pics!

The rosanervig has some nice veining. Where'd you get the more stable variant from?

Your crypts will be back to their former glory in no time!

Sorry, no pleco pictures as they hide too well. Unless I totally break down the tank, I will not be able to take a good picture of them.

Honestly, I don't know where/who I got the stable rosanervig from. At one time, I brought from 5 or 6 different people to find a stable strain for submerged growth.

Default Quick update

After two weeks of stable condition with CO2, ferting, and good cleaning. The crypts seem to be bouncing back. Lots of the crypts are showing signs of new growth.

I did another round of cleaning, pruning, and algae removal today. Also, I added osmocote root tabs for all the crypts. This should give all the crypts a little extra for recovery.

I checked the tank this AM, it looks like the crypts are responding very positive to the improved condition. I will have some update photos this weekend.

It looks like some hair or threaded algae developing close to the substrate. From the look of it, I might not have enough flow in the tank. All the plants are not swaying like it suppose to. With that, I've decided to upgrade to Koralia Evolution 1050 from my maxjet 1200. It should be here Monday.

Another future improvement that I'm planning to make is to switch over from canister filters to sump. Still need to work out all the details.

Last, I've dedecided to sell all my Affinis (see my sale thread).

Here are few pictures of the crypts bouncing back.


Starting to get some hair/threaded algae growing on the substrate. I think it is coming from not enough flow and low CO2 level. I have upped my C02 level but I'm still waiting on a new power head to be delivered. Hopefully it will be here real soon.


The aponogetifolia has grow a new leaf.


Kota Tingii group has grown multiple new leaves.


Hudoroi has grow a new leaf.


SP Rompin has grow a new leaf.


Minima 'Gasser' has grown a new leaf. I have noticed this crypt doesn't like the high light as much. The seem to prefer the medium to low light. In high light, they grow super low and doesn't seem to do as well.


Bullosa 'Sarakei' even has a new left.

Overall, I'm rather happy with the recovering of all the crypts. A lot of them are throwing out new leaves. The new leaves have really nice intense color and look extremely healthy. They do not look like there are any deficiencies in them.
