HELP! browning erio!

My erio is starting to brown at some of the tips. can it be overdosing fertz? co2? i only had the plant for about 2 weeks. dosing twice a week with root tabs. co2 on timer. lights are on for about 8 hours. its a 24g nano cube.

thanks

What are you dosing? Are you putting in root tabs twice a week?

It shouldn't need 2 root tabs a week! Maybe one a month max. You can't really give it too much CO2, maybe some of the leaves were damaged in shipping? Or maybe you don't have enough light.

What erio species is it.

Do you have hard or soft water? Erio's love soft water.

lol. let me clarify.

I use osmocote caps plopped every 3 inches.
I dose dry fertz twice a week.

all my plants are prospering, just the tips of my erio cinerum is turning brown.

I actually dont know my pH. I never test it haha But since im just using tap and prime, I think im more on the softer side. (I live in San Jose,CA)

thanks for the prompt responses guys! this is one of my favorite plants, I just want to grow it effectively
