    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...

    Fin rot

    I have not been waiting, I wouldn't ever wait for something like this to just go away so sorry if what I said was misleading. What I mean is I've been trying a bunch of different things all of which I think I listed and none of them worked, so I've come here for more options or ideas. The fin...

    Fin rot

    Oh well yeah its been more than a month its been like a year since he's gotten it and its been off and on. I've just noticed some regrowth in some areas over the past week but other areas are still infected. He's had it since I moved him into a larger tank. I think improving his water is...

    Fin rot

    Thanks! Glad I was able to capture his fins well enough. I've seen some regrowth in the past few days due to doing a waterchange every other day, but his finds are still damaged looking in some areas. Today I tried to dose with pancur c for the deworming because he didn't eat anything that...

    Just happened to catch him spreading his fins super wide.

    Fin rot

    Another weird thing about him is he's never flared, not even at his own reflection. I've used a betta mirror before and he just looks at it and swims away. I've had other bettas that have flared a bunch of times at different things but never this guy. I tried to send some pics where he's...

    Fin rot

    That's good! He is pretty muscular, just seems skinny. He doesn't have that big plump look of most bettas.

    Fin rot

    I might be able to get a clearer picture of him that I can send u when I fix my camera later today. My phone camera sucks lol When u say big daily water changes how big? Like what percentage? Some ppl told me not to go over 50% cuz it'll stress him out more, I guess fish are subjective tho...

    Fin rot

    He is a picky eater but he eats pellets, krill treats and bloodworms with enthusiasm. He's very active as well. He'll chase my hand when he's not in a corner sleeping.

    Fin rot

    Thats a great tip! I plan on getting an ROW unit for my sink. They're a bit expensive here in the US but it's worth it! I just have to save again lol for now ill just dw in some empty gallon jugs I've been using to refill my tanks. I just purchased the leaves and dewormer so I can hopefully add...

    Ok I'll buy those plus use dw. Should I use hospital tank with those meds or keep him in there?
