Thanks!  I haven't got my issue yet, so I haven't seen it.  It was lots of 
fun having Gary peering into my tanks for the two days he spent getting the 
shots though!  We have other "joint ventures" planned for the future.<g>

As a side note on Crypts, after maintaining C. pontederifolia for several 
years now, I finally have babies.  Now the funny thing is that this occurred 
after moving the plants to my Discus tank kept at 82-84F.  Has anyone else 
had experience with this plant preferring warmer temperatures?
