Exclamation Java Melting?

Hi, I grabbed some java fern from my old tank and put them in my 2.5g nano. It's going through a fishless cycle right now with some dwarf hairgrass... but for some reason it's melting on me. Is this normal??

I tested my ammonia yesterday and it's at 4ppm. nitrites still at 0.

The leaves aren't turning brown. They're just getting clear at the tips and dissolving. The right leaf is starting to melt and the left most leaf is already gone..

That's a Crypt, buddy, it's normal for them to melt when replanted, give it a couple of weeks and you should see some new leaves...
