Hello. Got a 75 Gallon tank, been set up for a year. Got a BP, 3 clown loaches, 1 danio, 3 tetras, 3 DG, and 2 nerites. Just planted a ton of amazon sword. What is going on with them? I have flourish tabs under the substrate, actually have 8 in the right side of the tank, so 25% water changes weekly, have a marine land light for backup but use the Current USA lights. Lights are on for 10 hours only. What’s up with these plants!!!

It's hard to tell, but it could be the emersed growth leaves dying off. That's pretty common. Especially if the new leaves look different and are doing well.

Mine did the same thing! Took about two months for them to completely ~melt~ the old leaves. Now they are huge and so green. I would say if they’re at least still getting new growth it’s just part of their life cycle, nothing on your end 🙂
