    Update on the Swords..... They seem to be doing VERY well with their new location in the tank and the DIY ferts I made. In the 1 month or so since replanting and adding the ferts, they've each grown 4 new leaves and 1" in height with no die off whatsoever. I can't wait to get the new light as it should help not only the swords, but every other plant in the tank. I really hope that this continues as I love the look of the Amazon Sword.

    :
    You're question and response to my answer has bugged me ever since. After doing some research, the best I can come up with is that I possibly have a species of Cryptocoryne parva as it resembles nearly every picture that I come across on the internet. From the way the leaves grow, their height and color of them as well as the leaf stems, it all matches. Looks like my LFS supplier either mislabeled them or doesn't know their Crypts.....they were labeled as Wendtii.

    There must be different types of parva as well, because I had parva in the exact same tank, it melted now but it was green and barely was tall enough to peak through the gravel. Very very tiny. Then there's another crypt in that tank lol, that looks like the stuff you and I have, but it is smaller than that stuff, and larger than the parva I had. Or at least labelled parva. Not sure what else or would've been though. Oh well, it's a nice crypt, glad you and I have them.

    That taller one you're referring to is actually from the same pot as the ones next to it, although I can't remember if you can see them in my photo's (I haven't looked back). That one came out of my son's 5g tank tank that had blasting sand as the substrate. It had been in my tank for about 3 weeks when I took that pic so it had some melting in between the transplant and pic. It seems to be starting to grow again though. So in short, the one's I originally placed in my tank are alot shorter and didn't do as well, but the 1/2 placed in the 5g, well you can see the difference. I think it was mainly due to the light.....it was alot closer to light in the 5g compared to my tank. That will all change next week as I'm ordering the new light this Friday.
