Melting plants?

I have a 10 gallon with 26 watts on it and My plants have started melting recently they were fine but it seems when I added my diy co2 into the tank they started melting. I have 1 Anubias 1 small Temple compacta and 1 medium sized Amazon sword. The leaves seem to becoming transparent and dying does anyone know why is this happening.

Are you adding nutrients as well? CO2 without nutrients will throw off the balance and starve the plants of other nutrients faster

Gotcha, that covers micro/ trace nutrients. You'll need to add macros too. N, P, and K

There's good all in one macro additives out there. It looks like the plants are deficient in something, I'm not great at pinpointing which ones though. I just add macros and micros to cover the bases

You're welcome. Here's a product that offers macro and micro in one (only product like this, that I know of)

I started using these recently with good results so far.

Seachem has a full line but one could go broke buying everything needed. @nilocg's stuff is inexpensive and easy to use. Plus he's a forum member, so you won't have to look far if you have specific questions about his products
