I'd have to say it's mostly new water filter and wheel are well cycled though. Had to do LOTS of water changes to get that dirty water out before I could get the wood and plants in and 'scaped.

Thanks, I'm hoping I can get that crypt in the back to get pretty big and fill up some background space

No, crypts should be put in the gravel as they are heavy root feeders and will die if not in the substrate. Make sure to put root tabs under you crypts at least once a month to ensure good health.
