    All my plants are decaying

    Yep just a lot of diatoms :) I've had plants coated in them before. I'm just glad they're easier to remove than green algae haha. That stuff is like trying to sand paint off a car.

    All my plants are decaying

    Yeah I think the combo of things did it too. I have some plants in my other tank that really like iron (moneywart and the weird octopus one) so I thought that the stem plants in here would be the same especially since I use RO but turns out not. My octopus grass grows like crazy with the...

    All my plants are decaying

    Edit: Hey so update! I deep deep cleaned and I found that if I rubbed the plant leaves and grass with my fingers the leaves were all still very green! They aren't decaying at all. The only one that's struggling is the Java moss and the water sprite but both appear to be able to make a...

    All my plants are decaying

    Yeah I actually started my other successful tank with dechlorinated tap so I was thinking of using tap with my next water change after cleaning all the brown stuff out!

    All my plants are decaying

    The light I have is the stingray clip on (I don't remember the exact specs but it's on Amazon) it's been great for my medium to low light plants. I run the light 8 hours a day but since noticing the diatoms showing up I've bumped it to 10. I've never had high levels of ammonia the most it's...

    All my plants are decaying

    The light I have is the stingray clip on light. (I can't remember all the specs rn but you can find it if you look it up on amazon, it has worked well for my low and medium light plants thus far) Are you suggesting I use the seachem flourish instead? I've been using the ez green in my other tank...

    All my plants are decaying

    Hey there so I just started a new tank like last week and things haven't been going well. It cycled but all my plants are dying. I know they take some time to establish but I have another tank that wasn't this bad before it established. Basically, all my moss is brown and grey, plant leaves are...

    Fin rot

    Oh really? Never knew that it would do that. I mean, ph is the same in my other tank without it so the tap needs fixing anyways. Temp is 78 F my heater isn't adjustable 😞

    Fin rot

    Yeah I thought the flow might be bothering him. The way the tank filter is I had to disconnect the tube and move it slightly to the left so only some of the water goes into the tank. I was hoping the flow was adjustable but it wasn't. Luckily this way slowed it down. For sure. At the time I...
