Cryptocoryne balansae


(Cryptocoryne crispatula var. balansae) This is one of the larger taller Crypts as the leaves can sometimes reach 22" in length, though this is kinda' rare. It does best toward the background of the aquarium without a doubt though. The leaves are dimpled and dark green. C. balansae, like all crypts, sometimes suffers from melting when first placed in a new tank. This is NOT the end of the world. Leave the root in place and it will grow back. It dislikes being moved, so try to place it and leave it. Medium to highlight is preferred. and it will take slightly acid to slightly alkaline water with no concerns. Really the only thing to watch is do not move it alot or it will melt. If you do move it then try to make sure the water conditions in its new location are similar to the old location or it will melt. If it does melt, just wait as patiently as possible because it will sport new leaves in a fairly short period of adjustment.
