You really need a deep tank to make a crypt carpet work, and a lot of money to buy enough plants to get the carpet established. Even C. parva, which stays small, does not make a very good carpet as it take it forever to start to spread. Use crypts in bunches to make a 'stand' or a hedge, and use domething else for a carpet.
Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.
It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
