If it counts for anything, crypts are my personal favourite plant. They do have a reputation for melting (dying off then regrowing) but I've never had this happen to me (and I abuse my plants a lot). I have a crypt that's almost at the top of my 20 gallon long (probably about 8" high) and I love it.
It looks good so far. A quick and easy "design" tip is, to take some black bristle board paper and tape it on the back. A black background looks very good, puts the focus on the fish, and if you use paper it's very cheap to do.
Okay thank you Olympia! I will make that background for it this week!! Also I will wait till the plants come in and get settled before I get 2-3 more loaches as well as 2 more corys.
Nilett, do you happen to know which LED light set up you have??
