Heteranthera zosterifolia not doing so well
I have had H. zosterifolia in my 75 gal tank for about a month-3.4 wpg, phos=0.5, NO3=5, KH=4.5. I add 7 mls Flourish/week and 7.5 mls potassium/week. Flourite substrate, CO2 automated system with pH=6.7-6.8, Trickle filter. These plants are not growing well. The stems are dying and the plants will often be floating in the aquarium. The new leaves that do form have curved transverse black lines through them after a few days of development. At first I thought that the lines were caused by snails. I have since removed all the snails that I could see. Some of the snails were getting quit large. I have not seen any snails for about 2 weeks. I don't think they were able to reproduce-They came with a order of plants unexpected. Does anyone have any idea why the plants are not thriving.
