I am positive, I will show you some picks, the center of the plant has leaves just like is did when I got it from you and the outside older leaves look very similar to the wendetti red/ mi oya next to it, I actually need to trim some leaves that have a little bba on them so I'll do a macro shot of each tomorrow, this is why I started the thread in the first place because the leaves are so different than any pictures I have seen other than in the wild, I will say my wendetti leaves are a lot broader and more colorful than most I've seen, I'm sure it is the extremely high light I have ten under.

By the way Nick I'm going to send you a PM at some point I have some questions on shrimp, I'm thinking of starting a couple tanks for them.

Sounds too odd. Post up some HQ pics.

Go for it, if you need shrimp, I'm your man .

I only have the basic common crypts right now, but I will be adding some new ones to my collection and hope to have some rare ones in the near future. Great thread!

Thanks for posting your collection lists.

Wetworks, post what you have today. You can always edit the list. There may be people that have a question for you about a sp. you own.

Nick

Here are the pics of the nurii 'pahang mutated' and wendtii red/mi oya while not completly the same they are close. If you look close at the nurii leave you will see it still has the nurii markings,

Comparison


Large Nurii leaf


Large C wendtii Mi Oya


Small nurii leaf


I just ripped alot of stuff out of my aquarium so I can't get a shot of the plant right now I need it to clear up

WOw! I have never seen a nurii leaf like that.
This reminds me of the cordata leaf nurii.

My crypts:

C. walkeri var. lutea
C. crispatula var. balansae
and I think C. nurii? maybe wendtii? I need to get an ID on this guy, the LFS doesn't exactly label their plants all that well.

The tank I keep them in is here: my 30 gal.

They are all grown submersed. I have had the lutea for about 5 years and it is the king of the tank

Len,

That's a crazy looking Nurii leaf bro. It don't look anything like any Nurii I've ever grown, for sure.

The small leaf, yes. The large leaf, I would probably call it a wendtii myself if I didn't know. Could it be that you're growing these two plants next to each other and the wendtii is having some sort of genetic influence on the Nurii? Is that even possible? lol

I haven't been able to find a pic like it in a tank I have pics of the wild nurii 'pahang mutated' that look similar but wider leaves, I want to lower the light in my tank but can't bring myself to do it. I just started a major rescale I pulled all the stems except for a couple h pinnatifida an removed most of the wendtii an moved some back. The whole front will be nurii, keei and affinis now. I need a background plant what would be a good 18-20" crypt I might use, preferably something not too common. I'm also considering a macranda red or ludwigia red. Oh yeah I also put one of the C ideii in the tank too, it needs to go back to a crypt cube like it started the stems and java fern took it over though..

Go look at the pics of the wild nurii it looks a lot like that leaf, my guess is it's how it grows under high light, I have some other nurii 'pahang mutated' from tissue cultures that I'm going to put in there and see what it does, it's emersed right now so I should be able to see what leaves it forms as it transitions, I'm hoping the affinis "red metallic" I just got looks like it does in the wild as well..

Maybe C. Cordata "Thailand" ? That gets tall?

You welcome Len about starting the thread. The idea credit goes to the the guys that wanted a crypt sub forum, Chad & WetWorks.
