5.5gallon betta nano, browning/disintegrating plant

had this nano going for about a month now. everything else but my wenditti is doing fine (foxtail, anacharis). betta is fine, as is his algae eater friend.

testing the water, i found a very, very faint trace of ammonia, so i did a 50% water change.

what should i be looking for? research on the plants in my tank list them all as low light/easy maintenance. im using tap water w/ prime and have had no issues up until now.

thoughts are appreciated!

You probably need to provide more information so people can help you better. Like what kind setup, lighting, substrate, etc

Depending on how long the wendtii has been in your tank, it's probably adjusting to your water conditions. The old leaves will melt and new ones will grow. All crypts do this.

thats most likely just crypt melt. when their roots are disturbed, particularly when water conditions also change, a crypts foliage can rot away. its normal, and the plant survives, growing new foliage.

you can remove the disintegrating leaves, they just rot and look unsightly, but leave the healthy ones.
