HELP hairgrass is dying...again...

Whats up with hair grass? IM not having any luck with it, i have better luck with rare plants than hair grass!? Whats up with this? All my plants are pearling like mad even the E. Stelleta and i got the hairgrass where it gets the most light and its turning BROWN!? I dont feel like going over all the tank stats but im dosing Flourish tabs, Flourish, and Flourish Iron, as well as Co2, and the light is over 4 WPG. HELP!

It's all about the N-P-K. Your hairgrass is starving to death...literally.

Exactly. What you're doing to your plants is akin to taking a lot of vitamins but eating no food.

I agree with John P.
They turn brown for me when they're lacking Nitrates mostly, they seem to grow fine with traces amont of phosphates that are in fish food. My phosphates seem to hover about .5 more or less
