Also, if you are noticing some brown spots, it is possible that it is all perfectly normal; Java Fern propagates in this manner.

|kkoch||I didnt want to start using fertilizers but maybe I will have to. I currently only use Prime in my tank. The rhizome is the root system?|

I see a couple of things in your photo:
The rhizome of you java fern is in the substrate which can lead to rot. The rhizome should be attached to hardscape like stones, driftwood, or even ornaments. You can use thread, rubber bands, or superglue gel to hold the rhizome in place.
What are you fertilizing with? Typically the brown spots/holes shown in java fern leaves of your photo is a sign of a nutrient deficiency; probably potassium. If you are not currently doing so, start using a good balanced fertilizer.
