I have a light undermy tank so I turned it on and looked at the bottom of my tank and I saw what MASSIVE root systems my crpts have made. I never knew they grew so big and THICK it's amazing how fast they grow too. I was just wondering, some of the roots are running into the glass, should I redirect them so they have room to grow?

ATM, yup. I have a metal stand for my 30G tank and I am able to look underneath it to see my plants' roots too. They're spread all over the aquarium floor.

The roots will be fine, they will re-direct themselves Crypts really don't like to be disturbed. Sounds like your doing right by them

Thanks, I moved their roots though because the three roots were growing up out of the gravel on the wall, was I wrong? Also the crypt finally formed a new plant but it's so small and it's just growing more leaves and not taller, will it ever grow taller?

Well I hope that pretty soon is soon since it has been there for two months now and nothing is happening but do you think I could rotate one of my crypts 300 degrees so it looks better or would I be taking to much of a risk of killing it?
