    Hi Marisa

    Check out Aqua Empire in Randpark Ridge, they usually have a good selection. Alternatively, BetterWeather on the East Rand has a decent selection too. VIP Pets in Little Falls usually has a small selection of plants but not always labelled well. @ShrimpNation might be able to help you out too, or McMerwe in Bloemfontein does deliveries

    Crypt Wendtii grows quite large.
    I have some in my 2ft tank, and I am considering removing it.
    Crypt Lucens is slower growing, but will still grow quite large over time.

    Thank you to both for your replies.

    My tank is bare at the moment so I need taller plants for the back. Pezulu your plants look really healthy. I have a three foot tank. May I ask why you want to remove them?

    If you do remove them what would you charge and how will I get the plants from you?

    What is the temperature you keep your tank at and may I ask what fish you keep in your tank?

    Do you have snails in your tank? I hear it can become a problem.

    Regards

    Some of the Crypt Wendtii are outgrowing the 60cm tank they are currently in.
    They should do well in a 90cm tank, which is a bit higher than the standard 60cm they are currently in.
    The 60cm tank is 33cm high, while the 90cm tank is 39cm high.

    If you're able, you're welcome to come through to Centurion to collect some.
    There are various Cryptocorynes available.
    Just bring your entire bank account. Alternatively I would like the new Mercedes Benz S-class that was introduced last Wednesday.

    All my tanks run at about 22°C, and have just shrimp and a few Otocinclus in them.
    There are snails in all my tanks. There are also a few Assassin Snails in the tanks that are fighting a losing battle against the pond and ramshorn snails.
    There are also freshwater limpets in my tanks, that I would dearly love to get rid of.

    If you do get rid of them please let me know. I'll happily take them off your hands
