  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi everyone, Started a new tank about 8 weeks ago. This is pretty much my first real attempt at going somewhat high tech. First weeks I had some diatoms, but those are already pretty much gone. However, I'm dealing with some very aggressive form of brown fuzzy hair algae since two weeks...

    Hi everyone, I'm wondering why as my plants grow, the older growth turns dark brown but the new growth is light green. I want to reduce or eliminate the amount of dark brown growth from my plants. I am currently running a CO2 system at about 1.5 bps and I have a Beamworks DA FSPEC light 10000K...

    Hi, my African Water Fern is turning into a translucent brown colour days after dosing Iron into the tank. I've read several articles saying that high iron content will turn the fern brown. I've also included a number pictures of the fern. I'm not sure if this is concerning and if there's...
  4. Low Tech Forum
    Hi friends, This is my first post here and I wanted some Anubias advice. Recently my Anubias Nana leaves are getting Brown spots. I am unable to brush them off. They are rough. Can it be algae? Or is it a nutrient deficiency? The tank is a heavily planted 10-gallon tank. Other plants are...

  6. Low Tech Forum
    I think I may have sabotaged myself from the very outset. I set up a low tech Walstad type tank last January with mixed results ever since. I used organic garden soil as a base and capped it with Home Depot play sand. Most of the plants I have introduced grow ok, some ven do really well, but the...

    Hey everyone! I'm sure everyone is sick of algae/diatoms questions, but I feel like this one is unique. I've had a diatom problem in a tank that is over a year old. I've done all the regular stuff...using RODI water, good tank maintenance, eliminated or minimized sources of phosphates and...

    Got the plant from Petco about 3 weeks ago. It is sitting in a dirted tub at my yard. It gets direct morning sunlight for maybe an hour or two and then indirect sunlight for about other 6 more hours. I dont get why the plant is turning brown. Worst part is that it is sending out shoots that grow...

I recently trimmed it so could that be the problem? Furthermore these cloudy orbs are in my aquarium and I'm wondering if there's anyway to...
  14. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi all, I came across this forum when I bought a couple of those marimo "moss" balls (aka Cladophora and Aegagropila linnaei) from Amazon. I've been looking through all these cool tanks (esp pico sized ones) and am really excited about growing aquatic plants. Except I'm slowly killing my...

    I'm currently dosing excel every other day and flourish once a week with my water change. The first two pictures are the state of the anubias and java fern before I rubbed the growth off, and the following pictures are what remains after I finished removing the growth. I'm not able to remove all...

    I just received a few golfballs of taiwan moss, but it's all pretty dark green. Some strands are greyish brown. How do I get it to become a brighter green, and how long will it take? Also, are the greyish brown strands 100% dead, or is that capable of reviving?

    My plants are/have been turning brown and wilting slowly but surely. For a while my cabomba and the others were doing really well-growing fast and staying bright (or dark) green and algae free. then I had problems with my Co2 and I got algae, so I stopped the ferts, cut down light and got Co2...
