Help!!

All of the hc I planted in my new mini s keeps turning brown and dying I've got daily fertz from rootmedic, aquasoil, co2 at 30ppm, 27w light 10 hours a day with 50% daily wc. I don't know what is wrong and could really use some help.

Why are you doing that kind of water change?

What other plants do you have in the tank?

Do you see any algae?

I moss be in love

I agree with radioman; you can't expect the water column to hold a decent amount of fertilizers if you're changing 50% of the water daily. However, I have never used fertilizers before, and I have had success growing HC. 27W? How big is your tank? What kind of light are you using, and what kind of spectrum is it showing?

Do you know if the HC and UG you had was the submerged form of growth?

The hc came from two sources, the one grown submerged died and the immerse is still ok. Ug was submersed also. The light is 27w pc solar s, the one suggested and used by Ada for the mini s- its a 3.5 gallon tank.
