Since the brown algae has taken over my tank my crypts have been in seriously rough shape. They had been growing really nicely before, they had even doubled in size and I had to break them up into a couple more containers. But the algae totally took them over and since they have little dimples in the leaves (retrospiralis crypts), I often damaged them trying to clean the algae off.
So, I decided to order some new plants that will hopefully be easier to clean the brown algae off of.
3 amazon sword (only ordered 2)
3 aponongeton crispus (only ordered 2)
1 anubias frazeri (did not order this, but there were some issues getting the crispus and I was going to get these instead, so I think she threw this in just because of the issues with the crispus )
1 brazillian pennywort (hoping this will help some with the brown algae)
Anyway, PAC is awesome. They have amazing customer service and the plants always come super healthy (at least in my experience so far). I am blown away by the swords, they are tall and beautiful, hopefully they will stay that way!
I ended up putting the crispus in the betta tank bc I really wanted some tall plants for the goldie tank and the crispus was only like 3 inches tall.
Oh, I should also add that I put Puff back in the main tank. I took some video of their reuiniting which I will post later when I get it uploaded Anyway, here's some pics:
anubias frazeri (and anubias nana next to it)
