Love the natural sunlight! The apistos are beautiful. Very Happy

Did you get some stem plants? What did you get?

What wonderful shots! Fish really change when they get natural light on them - fabulous!

Don't give up on the one that its totally gone - crypts can "melt" away from being moved, like transplant shock, and they'll come back if you wait.

It varies. Give it a couple of weeks. The can be very touchy sometimes.

Liz is right about the crypts. Just leave them alone and wait. Don't try to move them again or do anything special. They don't like drastic changes to their environment - a move, a big water change, different things can cause it to suddenly lose leaves but do not despair!
Look here:
http://cvas.forumotion.com/t123p30-setting-up-for-hara-jerdoni
All these grew back from melted crypts in my 20 high. Now just look at them!

However, the plants I was asking you about are not the crypts. I don't even see those in the pix. The plants are best seen in the second pic, the one that seems reflected in the glass and looks like hornwort or some kind of ropy stem plant (that's the one that looks like a bottle brush) and then there's one that has a number of tiny leaves at the top of the stem, behind the Java moss. What are they? I like the tiny leaf one.

*LOL*! I thought they were real! I've never been able to spot the backgrounds - I always think they're real. Others spot them right away - don't know how they do it. Hang in there with the crypts - let us know how they do.

Came home this afternoon and my oldest Matthew had some exciting news, We got some eggs. everyone is pumped.

lil algea in the way and the eggs are on the under side of the pot but you can see a few in this pic.

probably going to pull the male out tonight and put him in an adjacent tank just in case.
