Why are my plants Dying?

Postby conrad9900 on 06 Jul 2016 11:05

New Interpet LED 90cm triple light added a few days ago, 2 FloraGlo T8 lights, co2 injection
My plants as seen in the pics are just falling apart, the temperature is perfect and the fish are all placid angels, corys, a pleco, clown loach
Any Ideas?

What ferts are you using and is there a plant specific substrate? Maybe an iron deficiency if getting holes in leaves.

Looks like they are melting - inconsistent CO2 levels and temperature are the reasons for plants melting...

Are the plants new? Is CO2 system new? Is temp stable?

Give them a bit of time. They will grow back. Just make sure you have consistent CO2 and temperature and good flow for nutrient distribution.

Good luck,
Seb
