Dead Melon Swords?
Moving some stuff around in my tank tonight, and notice the roots look really bad on 3 of my Melon Swords. They are both about 1 month old. Do I just blow it off to shipping, it was overnight shipping, but it been hot, or do I have more problems going on? Kinda scared to pull anything else up.
I have had some major Alage problems in the tank the last few weeks.
Tank is 125 Gal
Sump is 37 Gal
High pressure CO2, via reactor.
Monday - Wednesday - Friday
KNO3 - 1.5 tsp 3x a week
KH2PO4 - 1/4 tsp 3 x a week
K2SO4 - 1.5 tsp 3 x a week
Tuesday - Thursday - Saturday
Fe/Iron Chelate 11% - 1/2 tsp 3 x a week
Plantex CSM+B - 1 tsp 3 x a week
160 Watts, T5 HO, I just turned 2 of the bulbs off a few days ago from 320 Watts. Run the lights for 8 hours a day.
Substrate is MTS, capped with titanium moon sand.
My Tank is warm, so maybe these plants don't do well in high temps. Temp is 85.
Should I just toss that plant at this point? Those black roots are mush.
