Well, my plants found the hard way, somebody ate their leaves. :)
Since every crypt has 3 or 4 leaves that are alright, i hope they will
grow back. The others are fast growers, so it should be a problem, as
long as they begin to grow back.
Leaves i think it are easier to prune, it's the filters and equipment
the hard stuff to clean, now i have two methods h2o2 and bleach. I
think i used once a long time ago, hot diluted bleach.
