    I think I got the bug from AQto do a tank with crypts. Might use a branch with windelov ferns as the background, so what crypts does anyone here can recommend to start with? probably looking at 1 1/2 foot tank low maintenance. Anyone got picture of their crypt tank to show, I need some inspiration

    Here's mine with quite a fair bit of crypts.



    On left are c.balanase and c.lucens. In the center are a mixture of wendtii 'mi oya', 'tropica' and the normal green/brown ones.

    On right is a crypt. sp from china which I've no idea what species.

    Wendtii refers to Cryptocoryne wendtii. This species has a lot of varities, colour and forms.

    Echis refer to the Echindorus plants. Please visit Tropica.dk for more info.

    meanwhile, i'm waiting for some persons echi "ozelot" green to propogate so that i can have one in this scapeless crypto-echi tank
