Another shamefully panicky question.
Every day I wake up to a pile of floating leaves. It is extremely depressing. I need help, or consoling, or both. My once balanced tank has become a little biological battleground puttering along in a 55g tank.
Aside from the staghorn blooms and lovely undulating meadows of green fuzz algae, the plants themselves have developed issues. There's a whole new raft of l. repens leaves floating at the top daily. These all are coming from the bottom of the stem, rotting from the stem outwards. thank god it's just the repens and not something else, but never have I had this many issues at once. I'm waiting on a pressurized system to come via parcel post, but it's been about a week and the thing is apparently still en route to the sorting facility.
If there's one thing I've learned here from the arguments on tpt, it's that someone will always be able to grow plants without co2, fancy substrates, or crazy lights. so, someone advise me, please. Is it just the lack of c02, or a bigger issue?
