Plants ID - Crypts


Can someone please ID these Crypts. I believe there is a couple that are the same type of Crypts. I try to put them together and not sure if it is correct. I am no expert

1 & 5 - Same? (Brown looking with red/brown stripes)
2 & 3 - Same? (Green with bubble looking leaves, small and bigger plant next to each other)
4 - Brown/Bronze crypt? (Bunches of leaves)
6 - The one all the way in the back next to the black tube and crs.
7 - In front of the black tube
8 - The one that has funny looking leaves all wrinkly
9 - Next to the white tube/white mineral rock
10 - Far right next to the glass

Here is the video that should make it a little easier to ID them:


Thanks in advance.

I would guess you have mostly wendtii green and brown because for one they are common and two look like some of what you got.
Looks like you could also have C. beckettii, C. affinis, c lucens, c petchii, c. walkeri and c. parva

Once they grow some you might be able to tell better. Most of them are mainly id by their spathe. Here is a substantial photo gallery on crypt species that might help you out. http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...es&c=11&page=2

The tank has existing wendtii green and brown that used to be in there. I agree with you that some are wendtii green and brown. I know I have some expensive ones in there as well (I planted in there). I believe I paid $60+ for some and it had shooters at the time and I split them up. Forgot plants name.....................

The video is hard to see the crypts to properly id it. I think individual pictures of each crypt would probably be much better.
