Default Re: Allelopathy in Crypts

Hello,
I am seeking some advice for planting crypts. I am not totally new to them. I have a number of tanks and they all run smooth - except this 55- which is why I am going crypts. ( hard water, dual T5HO, C02- with lots of flow). It does not sound like I should be dosing the water column but rather adding certs to substrate. Mine is brand new and I start cycling this tank today.
This is my question.
Is it foolish to set up a 55 gallon tank with AS and plant Crypts. Will they all melt?
Will they come back? Sounds like I should space out them out?
Looking for your sage advice please. Thank you

I am not familiar with AS but why not just use soil? On the other hand I feed all my crypts with an ei type solution regularly they respond well to that.

AS= Aqua soil
I tried the dirt routine but frankly it was way to much work and more importly time. I also had a bad experience with it. So for me AS is the way to go - never disappointed.
Give int a shot you will be Surprised pleasantly

Thx for EI tip with ferts- I do it on six tanks- C0 2 makes a big difference...Huge difference. Half of my tanks have C02 the other half do not.
