Haha well its only been a few days since i started this thread, but yesum i will post a few more..itll just be a few days cause weekends are usually busy for me..but after i get these couple of stems a member here sent me then i will post some more! Well that's given that they aren't all frozen, because i need a nice splash of color in my tank again! Green overload is killing me! Though i just hacked up my tank some because stuffs growing like crazy! And i mean crazy, i can actually watch my camoba green (or whatever) grow 2in in one day, its insane!

Well also here's one of my other tanks..just a small 10gal, low tech, planted tank..been running a couple years now..used to be for shrimps, but then..someone got me another leaf fish, and I can't put this little guy with my fully grown 6+" leaf fish..they didn't get along great together..haha



And my favorite crypt is in this tank..Cryptocoryne nurii var "Pahang Mutated"



And up close shot of my last aquascape before it all melted down ha..



So for now there's a couple other pix..I will update some time soon..

If you ever get tired of that C. nurii var "Pahang Mutated" I claim first dibs. I might be even willing to pay for it.

HAHA LMAO, well yes once I get some good runners I don't mind you WILL have first dibs no doubt...but to tell you the truth, I have had it for like 6+months maybe longer, and it has only given me ONE runner from it..I got it off Ghazanfar Ghori (GG) on his last yearly sale of these, paid like 30$ +/- or so for it, now a days they don't demand as high of a price, but still my favorite crypt by FAR...

So I just planted that runner in my high tech tank so hopefully it will give me some more here soon..the low tech one only has 2" of soil so things only grow but so fast in there ha..I have had issues with the plant before due to my own crappy mistakes, and it has just recently flourished ha...SO with time comes all good things..

Everyone should check this dudes site out, he hasn't posted on it recently, but it has a bunch of crazy things he has done like tissue cultures and what not... Ghazanfar Ghori cryptocoryne website

Thanks much also! Yes I am with you on that, I love the jungle looking tanks when things come together nicely but dont look too pruned all nice and neat like some Dutch tanks do..Its nice to look at but not my style ha!

Well I don't mind and criticism be it constructive or what have you..I enjoy getting peoples input on my tank either way, but I appreciate the kind words! In fact I got a new plant yesterday, but I waited to plant it til my friend (another planted tank guy) came over so he could help me place it to make it look good...

Okay, little update, for now, probably be the last one til stuff decides to fill in a bit nicer..but here we go..So I just received some GREAT LOOKING Rotala macrandra, from a seller on here, plus another plant..Well I just hope it stays looking somewhere near this good and actually grows for me, as this will be the first difficult plant I have really ever kept..so fingers crossed!

FTS:


Right side:


Center:


Left side:



Random C. Nurii shot..hope this one fills in nicely!



And ANY one got pearls huh?



Okay so that's it for me..maybe in a couple weeks or something I might take some more..but for now this is how it stands..just gota shape it and keep things from getting to outa control! Ha can anyone tell that I love crypts to say the least..

Thanks for looking!

Not too shabby Looking good. A touch of color does not hurt either, imho. I see no problem with R. macrandra overtaking your tank, given the apparent health of other plants in there. Keep on going ....

Hey ovt thanks once again! Ya that little touch of color is EXCATLY what i had been looking for, for quite some time now! And thanks to you i have that balance i had been looking for..so alls done now, just let it grow and i should be happy for a while now..but ha i can only hope that this stuff takes over! Its a beautiful red so i dont mind! Seems to be oranging up a little so far, so i uped the iron dosing we will see if that helps but if not i dont mind the array of colors it can be..thanks!
