Hairgrass and moneywort aren't doing very well. (pics)






Only about 10 percent of the hairgrass is like this. I was thinking it might be because the grass was in a PetSmart gel pack and is now submerged. The moneywort was bought already submerged in the PetSmart tank and looked good. Now almost half of the stems are dying. My water onion, wisteria, anubias, and bleheri are going great with 10 hours of light, EI and iron (close as I could calculate to the dosing recommendations on this site), and DIY CO2 that according to my drop checker is right around 30 ppm. Water parameters are 0 amm, 0 nitrite, <5 nitrate, and ph changes from 6.8 to 7.6 depending on light on or off.

BTW my anubias pumps out O2 like crazy from nearly every leaf. Dunno if that indicates that my lighting, co2 and fert is good.

My anudias does the same thing! aton of c02!..your plants may be doing this because there are changing and getting acclimated into your aquarium and your water and water parameters are probably different then petsmarts..if you give it time they will probably come back around
