Cryptocoryne usteriana green
Cryptocoryne usteriana green will grow into a large tall crypt. Leaves have an awesome looking hammered appearance. Can take to hard water and would be a good addition to try in an african cichlid tank.

I ordered 2 of the C. usteriana as well as a couple other Cryptocoryne s. All arrived in top notch condition.
No melt, they went right in and are growing well. I am very happy with them.
I recently had an order of live aquatic plants held up during shipping due to the extreme weather recently. After finally receiving them I was disappointed to find that they had frozen en route. After contacting Bill and explaining the situation, he was more than helpful in rectifying the situation. Bill offered to refund or replace the entire order. We wanted to re-order but after waiting a week or so, hoping for the weather to warm up, it was apparent that mother nature wasn't ready to cooperate. So, we asked Bill to refund our money, which he did immediately. It was refreshing to have a company actually go above and beyond in order to make our online shopping experience right. So for now, we have ordered some non-perishable supplies from Aquacarium and received great service with that as well. But, when the weather warns up we will definitely be ordering our live aquatic plants from Aquacarium. Thanks for everything Bill! Sincerely, **** & Megan
After purchasing 2 of the Usteriana, I planted them in my 20 long dwarf cichlid tank with Caribbsea Floramax (black) substrate, ADA under substrate minerals and ferts and hydroponic clay pellets under the Floramax. After a 3 week acclimation period with absolutely no leaf melt, the crypts are beautiful and growing well. Close to a half inch of growth on both. That's not too shabby for a "slow growing" plant like a crypt. I would definitely recommend Aquacarium for all your planted tank needs.
