    Possible nutrient deficiency

    Does this look like old dying leaves to you or could this be nutrient deficiency? This is on my amazon sword plant, which is a heavy root feeder to my understanding. Should I give them another Seachem root tab? They have/had the same root tab since the end of august (2023), maybe they've just...

    Could anyone tell me what deficiency my Amazon Sword (Reni) is experiencing? I suspect iron, but am not 100% sure! TIA

    Brown leaves on Bacopa & Sword

    As the title suggests, my Bacopa Monniera (not entirely sure on its exact name) and Amazon Sword have some brown discolouration on some of their leaves and I'm not entirely sure why. I've attached a couple of photos although it's not very clear in the photo of the sword. These plants are in a...

    Fertilizers? Substrate? Help needed for a planted tank

    It's been a long time since I've had a fish tank with live plants, and I'd really like this next one to be planted. The tank will have 2 dwarf gouramis, 2 killifish, 10 neon tetra, 2 african dwarf frogs, and maybe some cherry shrimp. pH will be around 7 and temp will be about 77 degrees F. I'm...

    Overuse of root tabs

    Hey all, Got some more swords today, and these obviously need some root tabs. I had just put a batch in about 2 and a half weeks ago, and the package advises to use once a month. Could I put in just one or two root tabs with these new swords?

    What is this algae and how can I get rid of it?

    10 gallon cycled tank with 3 Gardneri killifish, 6 corys, and 2 nerite snails. Cycled, 0/0/15. It is only on my amazon sword plants. I’ve not noticed it until I moved today and had to completely redo my tank! what do you think? I have algaefix chemicals but that’s a last resort.

    Help. Sick Swords

    Please help. I purchased a couple of Amazon swords about a month or so a go. My problem is that some of the older lease and the new leaves are skeleton. No flesh only ribs. I use root tabs, Excel, Floriush, Iron, and trace elements. All my other plants are health and are thriving. My...

I...

    Amazon Sword- Brown Leaves

    So, I guess 2 weeks without lights doesn't go well with plants. Who knew? About 70% of my amazon sword plant's leaves are brown. I think that I need to trim these dead leaves off and just want some confirmation. Is there anything else I can do to help this plant bounce back?   I really don't...
