java fern question
Hi all, I have a 29g established tank with 6 black phantom tetras, and I just added 2 java ferns about 3 weeks ago, and attached them to my driftwood with thread. I'm brand new to this whole plant thing but have been researching a lot before I made my decision. I have an 18w and a 20w light, total of 38w, which makes 1.3 wpg. I know this is low lighting, and that is why I chose the Java Fern.
In the past few days, I've been noticing that my leaves are turning brown.. almost a rusty colored brown? I've been adding Seachem Flourish since I've had them in there. Confused, because I'm not sure whether they are getting too much light, or not enough. The one that is shaded seems to be doing better.. not as brown. What's odd is that, I have the roots out of the gravel because that is what I heard you were to do with Java Ferns, and the roots are still growing new green leaves, even though the leaves already there are slooowly turning brown.
Thanks in advance for any help!
