They are so cute and your plants are in great condition. The crypts are so thick and nice.

Loved the video, and the pictures - they're just so ADORABLE. . . I want to poke those tiny lil' tummies!!! It looks like they're doing really well, I can see the coloration intensifying as the weeks go by. Beautiful little buggers. Love 'em!

Yeah the colours jus continue to come out
And they're so big. As in I went to another lfs and they had got a few in and they were TINY! Suppose you don't notice it so much when you spend time with them everyday!

One of then crypts is doing super well, weirdly the one under the filter so it's in the flow, whereas the one dead centre has lost a few leaves etc and is much much thinner on growth. Anything I can do to help it?

The only aggression i see is feeding time when theres a bit of hustling and bustling etc. Especially when im specifically feeding one who hasn't got as much as the others yet! All so greedy!

Apart from that there is the occasional chase, but always seem to jet away fine in amongst the plants then normally come back and have a pop right back. After that, seems over.

I inspect them daily at feedings and have seen no marks etc, or nipped fins to suggest any bullying or intense fighting.

So its still going REALLY well! Fingers crossed it continues!

Ok, lots of pics to come tonight as its been a week and so want to keep the constant comparison pics going.

First off though as said before, theres a real difference between my 2 Crypt Beckettii's.

I'll post a pic of both.
If anyone has any tips on how to help numero 2 look like numero 1, that would be great!


Its just sand on the leaves btw.



Couldnt get rid of the posers as they know its feeding time very soon.
