    Welcome! I love that tank. I'm a huge crypt fan. What kinds do you have there? I'm guessing Balansae, wendtii, maybe... undulata? Looks like something else too but I can't tell for sure.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Thanks everyone.

    I have been growing weeds for a "few" years. This is mostly crypts but there is a sword and a red tiger lotus in there. I'm hoping I can control the lotus.

    I really like crypts to. The're very easy to grow fast.

    List,

    Cryptocoryne Wendtii green
    Cryptocoryne Wendtii brown
    Cryptocoryne Undulata
    Cryptocoryne green gecko
    Cryptocoryne willisii
    Nymphaea lotus "red" (Red Tiger Lotus)
    ozelot sword (echinodorus ozelot)
    Java Fern
    Java moss

    Is definitely a crypt tank!

    I'll say. I mistook the willisii for balansae. That is a really cool one. Seems like every day I find a new crypt I didn't know about. I would love to do a crypt only tank in the future.

    I dose around 30-35ppm Nitrates and 5ish ppm phosphate every Saturday with 30-35% water change. As well as CSM+B 3 times per week. I've had phosphate as high as about 10-15 with no signs of excessive algae. Some small amounts of green dust on glass. Nothing on the plants. If Co2 drops for any reason I'll have an algae crash. Keeping Co2 as high as the fish can tolerate seems to keep algae at bay. Low kh 3-5 makes managing Co2 levels much easier.
