The tank is coming along from my updates. No, I am still fighting the cloudy water issue. I think I've found the problem from my earlier post. Just changing up my ferts regime to see if it will resolve it.

I should have some C. 'Rosanervig available in a couple of weeks.

My rompin is alive and growing but not thriving like other crypts in the tank.

Update on C. Flamingo... it is still alive. It is having a tough time rooting in the tank from all the snails and fish moving them. So moved to it is own container. They are house in a Gush Orb. Lets see if they will finally settle in and start rooting.

You can see, the new leaves are pink!

These look great! I cannot wait to see how they grow in your tank. The C. affinis I got from Xue has thrown its first leaf today, what a funny coincidence that you posted this!

I got these from Xue:

crypt affinis metallic red "pahang barat"
crypt affinis (unknown location)

The 2nd one may be the same, but the one I got was almost all green with reddish veins and some red near the base of the leaf. I just went to look at that one to better describe it here, and found a new leaf starting to come out!

The one without collection info is the lower growing green form. It can be brown if grown in high light

You will like the Metallic red mine has doubled in size since I got it and each leaf has more red than the next (I have high light).

Yup, you got the same one Hung just did. Color can vary depending on light intensity. It can be lime green in low light.

Growing it in direct sunlight will be even more impressive.
