I have had my aquarium for over 15 years, and finally decided to do live plants..... My tank is:
125 gallon tank (6ft long)
CO2 injection with Milwakie ph monitoring system
Flourite dark substrate
two Rena Filstar XP4 filters
Two Rena inline heaters (temp kept at 80 degrees)
PH kept at 6.8-6.9
Iron is .5
i also dose with Seachem Floruish Iron, essentials, Trace, and Potassium.
I forget the brand light i have, but i have a total of 3 T5 plant bulbs
I use well water as well.......
I have Anacharis, creeping charlie, mint charlie, and Java ferm all in the tank.....
They seem to grow, but as soon as they start growing, they all turn brown and are about to die.... I also have two apple snails.....one of the snails died and it had white stuff, looked like etching, on its shell..... The other is still alive, for now.
What is causing my plants and snails to die?????
I am very new at live planted tanks so anything you can offer, i would greatly appreciate.
