java fern problems help!
First off I have searched the archives and found no answers.
Here's my tank specs,ph 6.8, dkh 4.5 nitrate 20ppm,co2 22ppm , phos almost undetectable, iron level is good as well. 3.4wpg. I dose with pmdd btw
Anyhow all other plants grow like weeds, hygro stricta, water sprite, cabomba.
Anyhow my javas seem to have light coloured leaves, with translucent tips and black dead patches. It gives off lots baby ferns but they never seem to do well.
My Crinum thaianum's keep developing small rusty holes on new growth that enlarge slowly.
I have very little algae in the tank except for some also on the ferns.
I'd really like to have more of a "gareth fern factory" so this is frustrating me.
with pressurized c02 jebo 828 , 9w turbotwist uv. up-aqua co2 atomizer16/22
& small yoyo and striata loaches and praecox rainbows.
