    Crypt ID, Help Needed

    I recently re-scaped my AquaMaxx 9.1 and realized I basically have a tank full of these crypts (not really but I probably have 10-12 that are between 2-3" across. Anyone know the name?

    They're in a low tech tank but I was running CO2 until about a 2 months ago. They were more pink with CO2 but not significantly different from what they look like now

    I think I got them from @Kole85 but not sure. Crypt nurii 'Rosen Maiden' maybe?

    It does look like nurii 'Rosen Maiden', and I know that Kole has those because he got some from me . It looks great.

    Are you growing them in CO2?

    This ones pictured are growing in low tech conditions, thought I did place a few in a recently set up tank with high light and they’re releasing a slight pink tone on the leaf, co2 will be added sometime this week when some parts I ordered arrive

    In my experience color has more to do with light levels than CO2. I've grown them from "high-tech" (medium light, medium CO2) to low-tech (unlit, unfiltered bowl sitting next to a north face window). In low light they get greener, in higher light the tan/pinkish color predominates. I've never grown them in high light conditions.

    Also, I can make the same plant look VERY different in photos depending on the lighting and color temperature settings on the camera.

    The lighting makes sense too, I have a failry bright light over a mr aqua 9.1 so there's probably only 8" of water the plants and light
