And that platinum angelfish is beautiful! I love his color and his fins are perfect!

Why did you do a cold water change? And what is it? Or is it exactly as the name implies? Lol

I was going to do a water change anyhow because it was due for one. I usually do a weekly 50%.
Normally I adjust the tap temp to as close as possible yo the tank temp. But I decided to try the cold water since I've been reading of angelfish breeders doing that for their pairs(yup. Reading more on angelfish breeding). It was a long shot. But I was hoping someone would drop their tube or get frisky.

Today marks 2 weeks for the cories and rosy barbs. However, I am having to expand the QT time because one of the barbs still has a fuzzy on his lip. Its gotten TINIER but it is still there.

Do you know what sort of Crypts you got? It's very difficult to just say Crypts are a foreground or background plant without knowing a bit more. First there's a difference in size between species (for example: C. beckettii petchii gets between 4-6" as does C. undulata, C. x willisii 'lucens' gets 4-8") and varieties (C. wendtii 'green gecko' gets 4-6" while on the opposite end of the spectrum is C. wendtii 'red' that can reach 18"). Even beyond the type things like nutrients and light play a role. In high light you can expect some Crypts to grow lower, while in moderate and low light they will grow taller in an effort to be closer to the light.

If you're not sure what kind you have, I'd try to find out from whoever you got them from. Perhaps the biggest drawback with dirted tanks is the inability to move plants with large root systems without pulling a lot of soil above the cap. The only other option being cut the roots and possibly kill the plant.

I know one of the types is crypt wendtii. The others are a different type that I haven't remembered to look them up. One of them has very long/narrow leaves. The others look similar to the wendtii, but are less bushy and slightly more narrow.

Even if wendtii had the potential to get 18" mine need get more than 6" even in lower light. So you may want to be careful if you go ahead and put them in the back.... XD

I might ditch my little logs, or find a way to place them among the plants.

The logs have some good spots that the crypts can go into.
