    How much Seachem Flourish do I add to my 3 gallon tank?

    I just got seachem flourish for my Java fern plants and am struggling to calculate the right amount so instead of getting too frustrated I’m deciding to ask on here. I have a 3 gallon tank so what exact dosage should I use?

    Need help with planted tank

    This is a 29 gallon with dwarf hair grass and Java fern and Amazon sword I think the plants are melting why is the grass turning this color? Also I use fluvial root tabs to feed the plants I haven’t placed new ones since I started this tank two weeks ago.

    Hi, I just started my first ever planted tank. It’s a 30gal, I got everything including tank, filter, LED hood, 100w heater and gravel on the side of the road for free. The only things I have bought so far are the fish which I owned previously in another established tank, and the sand. I say...

    Thought java fern was dying but I guess it's reproducing?

    I had a java fern in my tank for approximately five days when it started developing little offshoots. Worried about what they were as I got so many answers online, I separated it and put it into a cup of the same aquarium water and Fluorite substrate, with some Osmocote Plus, and under a grow...

    Will it work?

    I was thinking of getting some slim posts (plastic or bamboo) to use to anchor a bunch of anubias and Java fern, see if I can't make it look like I have some leafy trees in my 55 gallon tank. I have tried some different stem plants (more than 120 stems over the last year, 75 of that in just...

    Slow and weak growth in plants.

    Hi, I've been trying to grow plants in my 20-gallon tank (no fish) for a couple of months now and I haven't really succeeded. I would very much like some assistance if that's possible?

    Java fern small brown offshoots. New plants or something more serious?

    Hi everyone. I have a Java fern plant in my aquarium and recently I noticed a few of the leaves have started to sprout these small root like sprouts.

    What am I doing wrong?!?!

    I have a 55 gallon aquarium kept at ~78-80 Degrees F on a 12 hour light cycle with multiple root tabs but no water fertilizer. The aquarium isn't fully cycled yet. My Duckweed and Anubias plants are doing great... but my Java Fern, Monte Carlo, and some other plant that I got at Petco are not...

    Java moss problem

    isn't this stuff supposed to grow like nuisance algae? Not for me. I got my java moss when it was a lush green color at petco. I placed it in a Lower light area, parallel to my ozelot sword which obstructs a good majority of light. It's not like it's pitch black, just there isn't too much light...
