Right, all crypts removed. Couldn't avoid making a bit of a mess.
All the roots seemed to be in quite strong. I've left one small plant in, just to see what happens (if it grows back)
pH7.6 (no change)
KH 2 (previously 3-4)
GH 4 (previously 6)
So there is a slight drop in readings. Does this put the fish in any danger? Anything I can do to prevent any further damage?
Also - I'd not have noticed if the crypts hadn't melted. Are they a good plant to keep in the tank from that perspective (i.e. a canary in the mine role - they melt when there's a problem)
...I think that's 3 questions....
