The tank is about 2 months old. The crypt was at the pet shop I work for and was about to die. Since I brought it home it was growing green leaves but all of a sudden the leaves started to grow own brownish. Attached picture is how it looked about 15 days ago
Also it has put out a healthy runner that is still green.

I think it's turning brown like that because it's happy. Some crypts grow brown leaves, especially when they are getting all the light and nutrients they need.

interesting I am glad to hear that it is actually a good thing, rather than a shortcoming by me. this is my first devoted planted tank so I wasn't sure. Thank you all for your help!!!

Just a little update. It took a little longer than expected but those root tabs really perked up this plant!!!
