so ive had the fuge running for about 2 weeks now with plants. ive got about 2 watts per gal. (6500k daylight cfl) nitrates are at 10ppm, ph 8.0, flourite substrate, 78 degrees. so far ive got 5 java ferns, 10 corkscrew vallisneria, 1 vallisneria americana, some daphnia, micro worms, and a lonely nerite snail (thanks to the plants) upon first arrival of my vallisneria i noticed that they were the wrong kind, so back to the lfs for exchange! (thanks for giving me 11, i kept 1) took them about a month to get me Vallisneria tortifolia, i wont go there again. finally got the right kind, looked great! nice tight spirals, vibrant green! awesome! planted in the substrate, roots only, did well for the first week then slowly started to melt off leaves. trimmed them off, only to wake to more melting. my java ferns are doing great. just the vals are showing signs of "shock" maybe? eventually will it grow back so long as the roots arnt going bad as well? im new to this whole "plant" thing! please help!
