    I will be receiving a few crypts in trade, locally, and my buddy had a new crypt that baffled me. Cryptocoryne Undulata 'Purple' I tried googling up the 'purple' species, but looks like no one has posted anything of it. He tells me it was from a friend in Portland & they were taking down...

    Welcome to my emersed journey! I'm working to update this first post to include the current specs: tanks, lights/bulbs, etc., my plant list and such as everything has changed in the last year since I began setting up my first emersed tank. I am also in the process of packing my house up to...

  5. Riparium/Terrarium/Vivarium
    I began a first attempt at an emersed setup today. I'm looking for some help/guidance/advice on it. I've got a single picture here, more may follow, depending on how it goes (ie if I don't get tired of it tomorrow and throw the plants back into my aquariums.) The basic setup: I've got a...

    So I've been having trouble with holes in my Cryptocoryne lutea for the past couple months - definitely since before Xmas. I know that the default answer is that my plants are potassium deficient but I dose potassium, also I've kept lutea in this tank for probably 6 years now and at times I went...

    Well I'm starting a 11.4g Mr. Aqua and will be going with crypts to low maintenance.... I was wondering... since there are so many crypts, what are your favorites? Since I've only had one successful experience with one, I'll start first: Cryptocoryne walkeri 'lutea'
  9. New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone, I have been researching aquariums since the start of the year, and hope to start my first tank within the next few weeks. I like how visually stimulating aquariums can be. I live in Oklahoma. I am a college graduate. I work at a retail chain store. My first...
  10. Low Tech Forum
    I could have sworn that cryptocorynes need bright lights, no? Well, I'm doing research on good plants for a lowlight, low tech, easy to maintain 10 gallon tank, and I've seen varying thoughts on this species. They're not recommended for newbies, but then again they could be if you research...

    I have a start on a new setup. This will be a diptych--a single composition rendered in two adjoined frames--in a couple of 24" tanks (a 30 XTall and a 25 Tall). I intend to do both of these as high-humidity riparium enclosures mainly as a better way to display some of my nice emersed crypts. I...
