    Hey all. Some of you may keep better track of me than others, but anyways.

    This friday I ran around and bought meds to re QT my fish, (as they never have been, wil do a thread on how I do/suggest) but, this is about plants you say?! Yes, I bought some plants.

    I got a large handful (more like two) of Java Moss. I plan to add this to my spiderwood in my last attempt to make a tree.

    A sword,

    And a ... Broadleaf anubias?? Unsure.

    These sat in my tank that gets 24/7 finnex light, w/ fert/co2 dosings before I recut the roots/leaves today (thursday night into sat night).

    Today (saturday) I got a Cryptocoryne, and a Sagitarria. (Apologies for spelling) these plants look very similar, I hope they were correctly marked. If not no biggie. But maybe someone can double check the ID's. The Sag wasnt marked as a dwarf but it is fairly small, and I would like to keep it such.

    Today all roots and leaves got snipped back.

    Heres the before:::

    The long stems? Supposedly one is a cryptocoryn, and the other is a sagitaria. I'm unsure if this is 100%

    This is the Crypt/Sag that was sold to me. Unsure which is which, I honestly think they are both Sag.

    Beneath this text is my 100% Crypt.

    From my understandings Crypts have more curvy ends on the leaves.
