Plant Suggestion for the Plant Crew!

Recommended Posts

New to the Forums. If this post is in the wrong category, the Forum Mods are welcome to move it to the correct territory. 

Hello to the Co-op Plant Crew and Forumites. The plant in the attached photo is a Cryptocoryne spiralis that I ordered from Aquarium Co-op a few months back. I wanted to leave a review, but found that it's no longer on the site. 

For some context the crypt is in a 20 gallon long and spans close to a third of the tank. C. spiralis is fast growing for a crypt. In medium light, the leaves develop a very dark maroon color. 

My suggestion is to bring the plant back if it's available. It's one of my favorite crypts!

The example in the photo is planted in a 20 gallon long if that's at all helpful.

My tanks are under 10" tall, but some day, some day, I may venture into taller formats. I will live vicariously through yours in the meantime. 😍

There is a red version that is quite stunning but doesn't grow as tall...

I have the Wendtii and they do quite well. Love Crypts in general. 🙂
