Blyxia Murder Mystery


Hello, I planted some Blyxia in my tank the other day and the next day most of it floated to the surface and all the roots were gone. I have a lot of MTS, and I was thinking that it was them. I also have some Angelfish, Serpae Tetra, A Pearl Gourami, and 2 Clown Loaches. So who was it?

It's Blyxa. If it did not float up on you at least once, then you planted it wrong

Just keep on replanting until new roots take hold. Plan on re-planting every couple of months or so. It's normal and it's Blyxa.

It's the clown loaches. I planted a bunch of blyxa in two of my tanks one had clown loaches and other larger fish, the other tank had a variety of tetra and roselines. Both with eco complete. I can't keep the blyxa down in the tank with loaches. I only had 2 of 30 stems float up in the other tank

Yeah I hope It's ok, but most of the leaves are gone too. Some of the plants are just gone! I had 10 and now I have 2. Just hoping that these two will re produce
