Hello to everyone,

I`ve seen Javiercrypt aquarium live, and I have to say they are quite amasing. He has grown many cryptocoryne species also in the emersed form, obtaining many flowers from the diferent species.

Sería bacan que te pusieras algunas fotos de las flores de tus cryptos.

We would love to see some crypts flowers photos.
