I Never Realized How Much My Plants Have Grown!

So I was just looking through pictures on my laptop and I found one of my 38g aquarium on the day I planted it. Then I compared it with a picture I took today, and I was blown away. I canot believe how much my plants have grown! I also can't believe that I didn't even notice until now.

Thanks! I used to hate the crypts, because so many of their leaves rotted away at first, but they're thriving now and they're my favorites.

Yes, they can be very finicky when first transplanted, but once they adjust they do wonderfully.

The only ones that weren't finicky were the anubias. THe swords had a lot of yellow leaves at first. The java fern was fine too, but I'm not as much a fan of that plant. Now it's just there. The swords still have a yellow leaf or two from time to time though. I'm hoping they'll come out of it. It's mostly the small leaves though, not the really long ones.

Thanks! Since I compared these pictures, I'm now considering going back to CO2. It certainly had done its job! I'd need a new regulator but then again, Christmas is coming up.

Thanks for the compliments everyone! Do you think I can propagate the crypts a little? I did once but I think making a bigger group would be nice. What do you think?
