I also adore it when loaches go mad! They're such silly squirmy little things :D
I wouldn't be surprised if the crypt melts, either - but, by the same token. . . I wouldn't be surprised if it DOESN'T! Those plants are notorious melters, but in my (limited) experience, they're really random! The cryptocoryne wendtii that I have was shipped to me through the mail, and came from someone with VERY hard water (as opposed to my soft), and it never dropped a leaf. ALSO never melts when I have moved it in my own tank, or from tank to tank inside of my house. It kind of... pauses on growth for a month or so while settling in, but the leaves stay put. On the other hand, my cryptocoryne spiralis melted when I got it, and also every time I move a runner to a different tank within my home - but not when I move a piece to another spot within the SAME tank. Such random plants! Still, even when they melt to the quick, they come back gloriously fast - and it's neat to watch them grow. I'm really in love with the crypts I have, hope you have a similar experience!
I can't wait for those new loaches to arrive!!!
