  1. Hi All, My Crypt looks like it is dying.... the water parameters are good and well within range. I use root tabs every 30 days, easy green twice a week, and easy iron once a week. There are two crypts in the tank.... one is doing well, the other is not. The tank (20gal) is 97 days old, has little cherry and blue shrimps (10), otos (2) and endlers livebearers (3). What can I do to save my crypt? Tank 30 days ago ( no floating plants) Tank 2 days ago, crypt dying? Other crypt looks good. Close up of dying crypt close up of other crypt
  2. This post was originally dedicated to my 35 gallon hexagon that I refurbished but I have decided that it is now the journal for my MTS journey! I hope you all find my MTS entertaining or aspiring as I grow my aquarium addiction! So I acquired an old 35 gallon hexagon aquarium from a friend that had been sitting empty and unused for quite a few years. The tank leaked, the stand had mold or mildew in the wood and was just over all in pretty rough shape. I stripped all the old silicon out and resealed the tank. Sanded and painted the rims. Sanded and sealed the stand with Killz and then painted it black. I replaced the old hinges with new stainless ones and added a matching handle. The tank did not come with a lid so I made a custom one from a plexiglass. Got it all scaped up. Now I'm waiting on the fish to arrive. Let me know what you think!
  3. Heard it right 20% off ALL Cryptocoryne species at the retail store. This is not just a personal favorite species of mine but the staff as well. Easy plant to care for that comes in a vairety of shapes, sizes, and color. Even gives the tank some texture with wavy leaves. Its a must have in my tanks. Sale starts this Friday 8/13 through Sunday 8/15. Here is a great article to read if your new to this wonderful species. https://www.aquariumcoop.com/blogs/aquarium/why-is-my-cryptocoryne-plant-melting
  4. Love this plant! 1/3rd dose of easy green 3X a week, GLA EDTA Micromix 3X a week. Finnex planted clip on. Looks like I have found my volunteer for tissue cultures!
  5. Hi everyone! I added a cryptocoryne hudoroji recently to my plant holding tank on December 3rd. The other plants I ordered, some other types of cryptocorynes too, are doing really well. I am pretty certain this is my mistake for not cutting the stems or roots back initially. But regardless, within days of adding the plant, it melted back completely. I haven’t had aquarium plants for years because my disability made me have to take down all of my aquariums, and I’m trying to currently have one 20 gallon (to hopefully not push things over the edge, but still allow me to do what I enjoy). So I am pretty rusty. I feel as though I waited it out too long, and now the majority of the roots are very smelly and soggy (definitely rotting). I cut them back to about an inch, and removed any yucky goo off the top of the base of the plant. Is there anything else I should do, and should I continue to be patient or is the plant not going to make a comeback?
  6. In this "thread" I hope to document (with the help of as many that will) the growth and appearance of cryptocoryne Species submerged as I have not been able to find anywhere where you can see the submerged form of many crypts. So I will start with my Cryptocoryne Albida Costata. It is all green when it is emergent and is turning reddish orange with a cool pattern in my substrate with a good amount of iron. The oldest leaves slowly melt away but the newer leaves slowly can meet to submerged growth. If you wish to post your crypts please give everyone the Species and variant of you can thank you all in advance.
  7. My C. Nurii var. Rosen Maiden flowered underwater today! Love this plant.
