Crypt melt is common with these. They will wilt a bit when first put in the tank, and sometimes look like they have died completely, but will come back. I love crypts and this is not anything to panic about. It isn't them not getting food, but do keep in mind these are root feeders so be sure to have some root tabs close to them.

Somewhat, but they are heavy root feeders and if you want them to do well you will need to use root tabs. They are pretty cheap and easy to use.
