Leave the crypts, they will recover.
Do you believe the amount of plants I ordered is sufficient and the variety? I almost feel I didn't order enough of the Sagittaria and L. Mauritiana. I don't know 100% what they will be like when they arrive.
The Sagittaria Subulata (Dwarf) and Lilaeopsis Mauritiana will be able to spread the low level of the tank. I have the Anubias Nana on the front wood, Microsorium Pteropus on the back right wood. Java moss will be on the large piece of wood.I assume I am going to have to plant the H. zosterfolia behind the large piece of wood next to the back of the tank. The Echinodorus bleherae
will be in the back left. As for the Crypts I currently have I almost feel I don't know where they should be planted.
But now I'm in the process of applying slate to the bottom of the driftwood and allowing it to be cured so it will be able to stay sunk, then will apply the Java Moss to it.
