I was not expecting this plant to take off like it did. I have two like this that took off like crazy and one is too close to the glass already. All the red leaves are the new ones that have come out in the last month.

The crypts I had to move 5 months ago still look like crap so I really hate to move this. I was so stupid to plant it in the front of the tank like this. grrrrr

This crypt is under nearly 3 watts. Surprises me! Anyone ever move a crypt successfully?

Edited to add: The deed is done. No point in waiting to set it back when it's even larger.
dang it!

Doh! that sucks. I have never moved a crypt succesfully. Sorry. But that looks more like a sword though.

None that I had shipped melted. They only melted after I moved them but I have to say, I moved them 10 times, too. LOL Hopefully this one will be fine with only the one move.

I do want to decrease their light, tho, but now after moving it think I best leave it alone for awhile and make no changes.

I believe it's a Wendti red altho not positive.

That's why I don't have a Mac! LOL

Your link is not so hot, either. I can't go beyond that page.

The leaves are wrong for a wendti tho so I don't know what it is.
