    Best Crypt

    Posted by Frank Drescher on Aug 11th 2012

    I tried all kind of different Crypst and almost gave up after several episodes of crypt melts. All my fishtanks are low tech with low to medium light. Mi Oya was the only Crypt that did not melt. It grows well in low-tech, low-light set-up and has become one of my favorite plants. I also learned over the months that fertilizer tabs make a difference with crypts and they grow better in low light (at least in low tech). The colors of Mi Oya can vary under different light conditions but look absolutely stunning under simple fluorescent light that comes with the cheap aquarium kits from the usual retailers.
