    Can anyone suggest any low growing, or smallish Crypts that would suit a small tank, 25-30 litres?

    Amicorum can get quite large 10-15cm but to be honest any crypt can be kept small and compact just by consatntly pruning out any leaves that get to big, but be aware some forms can grow very large root systems.

    Don't trust Ebay Sellers, you can never tell of there from the far east or not, even when I ask I feel like they still don't know.. I'm not going down that road again! Lol

    Yea thats what i thought, was tempted though. Had a look at Aqua Essentials, but they're out of stock at the moment.
