I received a wonderful package yesterday of assorted crypts from a very generous man I shall not name [cough gordon richards cough thank you!] lol
I was going to do a little photo narration like other journals starting with a pic of the bag, then the plant on the table, prepping the plant, planting the plant...sorry
I think I managed to take two pics before I ripped all the plants out of the bags, crypts were everywhere! on my desk, on my keyboard, my phone in my nano, my bed, the floor, my mouse, and c. pygmea! my God that's a small crypt!
Pure bliss I tell you.. I literally was tossing plants into my tanks to inspect, clean and prune them...QUARANTINE you say? I say SHAWREMTINE ... yeah my tanks have snails; that I feed to assassins!
ICH? bah SHMICH! I've had the sickest ICH outbreak in my nano that made me afraid to put my hand in the water...cured it. Any fish in there are immune at this point, my cories eat theronts for breakfast, besides my tanks are a balmy 80-82 degrees.
Ya so I basically lost track of what I was planting and will probably post ID threads in a few weeks lol. I got bag of 300 DIY osmocote capsules that I probably plugged 150 in every square inch of my substrate...after several hours and a waterchange and fert dose my tank is on its way to becoming a crypt tank!
In all honesty, I felt like today was a turning point for me and my tank. I feel like I am only now beginning to understand plants and what they need from me and what I need from them. I hope you enjoy my pics!
