    It's crypt crispatula! I found out it was originally ordered as a three leaf plant with 3" leaves for $36! It came from a 220g tank.
    I love it that he buys rare plants off of local hobbists and knows his clients and their tanks lol.


    Now I want try the crypt Becketii he has too, the one he originally thought it was, it apparently gets purplish leaves!

    Congrats on your new crypt -- and for IDing it too. It is a very pretty plant - lots of interest in those leaves. I'm certain it will flourish under your care.

    That's what I'm saying Rivers, I called and the main fish guy there knew exactly which plant it was, who brought it in, which tank it was grown in and remembered when it was first ordered. I'm amazed at his ability to remember everything like that. He's great to have a serious hobbyist conversation with as well :)
    @Nautilus291 Now I have to get it hahaha! Yes, I am very happy I have this one. I appreciate it, they really get keeping animals with knowledgeable employees for every pet.

    I thought I had finally found a lfs like that couple of years back. Fish tanks looked amazing, had a couple of plant only tanks, and the people seemed pretty knowledgeable. It was an hour and a half away, but the only good fish store in my town mostly deals with saltwater, so it's not the same.

    Anyways I bought a group of fish and after three days they were killing each other, they were all males and there should have been more females then males. Before I drove down there I called them back to make sure I could trade them in for another type of fish. The answer was no, there was nothing they could do. Even though I was giving them live fish back that they could resell, they would only take them back as a donation. Felt to me that they cared more about the sale then the fish and a return customer. I haven't been back since, and a more local lfs accepted the fish to try to find a better home.

    I'm glad you were ultimately able to rehome the problem fish locally. It's sad the LFS couldn't help you more. They all have their rules though, there must have been a reason for it. I wouldn't go back either, a long drive to find them a better home. They should have helped you to find a better M/F ratio initially. Possibly not so versed...

    After I had issues I looked them up and found out they were more of a local chain, having stores in surrounding states, so I'm guessing that had to do with it. The worker on the phone was really nice and told me about the male to female ratio. Then when the manager got on the phone she told me that she has never heard of these fish being aggressive, and they only sell males.

    I have heard of a store in Indiana that is supposed to be pretty good, maybe I'll check them out for plants. I don't have to worry as much about the long drive with plants haha.
