    Oh what a shame. Thanks for your feedback. Are there crypts that would look similar submersed?

    Hey guys, I've got it growing submerged 70cm deep and has been doing well for over a year. Leaves are very fine and approx 150mm long. I'll get a picture up later

    Not any that are too common. C. sivadasanii (which is probably the next closest thing) is floating around among a few people here but is a very new import so I doubt anyone has any to spare just yet. C. crispatula var. balansae is probably the closest thing you'll be able to find, but what Aquagreen used to sell as 'C. crispatula' is about 30-40% narrower than "regular balansae" if you can find anyone with it...

    Thank you. Are there any other crypts here that are colourful aside from wendtiis and cordata?

    Try C. undulatus 'Red'... it's pretty common. C. spiralis can also get a nice mottled red colour (or at least has been my experience) but might be a bit harder to find.

    C. pontederiifolia can get a nice whitish/pinkish tinge, too, but is mostly green.
