HELP!!! My Java Fern is dying off!!!
OK, here is the problem. My Java Fern is turning brown and dying off. All of them. I have Trident, Tropica, Windelov, Needle Leaf, Wavy, and Standard in this tank and all of them have turned brown and died within the past two weeks. Here are my water parameters:
pH: 6.9 on average, 6.7 with CO2
Temp: 75.6 F
I dose the appropriate amounts of: Flourish Comp, Iron, Potassium and Phosphorous but no other ferts at all. I do not use Excel.
There is nothing in the tank that would eat them, they just start to turn brown and disintegrate. At first I just trimmed off the dead leaves, but now it looks like ALL of it is dying. Some of the Windelov and Trident has been growing for years (the Trident is 18+ inches tall!!!) so it makes me really sad. Can anyone please tell me what may be wrong and how I can salvage these??? Thanks!
I even have duckweed in my water bong!
