    Hi, I'm new to having dwarf hairgrass in a tank, and I've noticed that some of it in my 20gal NPT is melting. The only thing I can think of is that the floating plants (frogbit) are blocking too much light? I truly don't have much experience with the plant. Thanks!
  2. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi there all - After months of research and waiting I've finally set up my first tank. The tank is on its third day and I just want to make sure I've got the right idea. For reference: UNS 45 ~9 gal I did a 50% water change on day two (managed to stir up aquasoil real nicely on planting day...

    Hey all! I recently bought a new 75 gallon aquarium. I think everything seems in order but I am not that sure why the plants seem like they are melting. Here are my stats. Feel free to ask any questions about the tank that I have not provided. Thanks! A little background: 75 gallon tank...

    Hello, I'm a bit new to planted tanks, and I'm having a problem. I've had a 23ish gallon tank running for a while, Pool filter sand for a substrait, and various plants. I've been using Seachem products, flourish, iron, excel. the plants in this tank either grew well, or just didn't have much...

    This has happened a few times to me now. I'll get excellent growth on some of my plants (wisteria, corkscrew val, etc.) and they start propagating like crazy. They'll send out runners and shoots in all directions. When I finally decided the propagations are big enough with adequate roots to cut...

    Hello! I'm a long time fish keeper, who has always drooled over planted tanks. I recently decided to take the plunge and convert my 15g tall to a low tech planted tank! ... And I think I'm failing. I will try to include as much info as possible below and I am open to suggestions and gentle...
  7. Lighting
    Hey guys, I have two of the aluminum work lights with 23watt CFL's in them over my 10g. I have a normal glass lid with the plastic strip in the middle so you can open the lid. The light sits right on the plastic piece and I was wandering if it could melt? The plastic does get hot, you can...
  8. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hey everyone, I can't really find a list of plants that are not compatible with liquid carbon. I have a bottle of "API CO2 BOOSTER" but I am scared to use it as I heard it will melt some plants. I currently have 4 plant tanks with a mixture of these plants in them. Which ones don't work...

    Hi All, I just won a ROAK for some Blyxa Japonica. It shipped quickly, and I acclimated it well but am not sure of the the senders parameters. I am wondering if my parameters are too different from theirs and this is causing a problem. I have heard of Crypt melt, is this something like that...

    I got a big patch of UG and planted it in DSM mode for 1 month in my 20L. That tank also has HC and some how at the 1 month mark I noticed that the HC had spider mites and was killing my HC slowly but the spider mites didn't eat the UG for some reason or build their webs there. So what I did...

    I received this UG in the mail a few days ago and planted it immediately. It looks about the same as it did when I opened the package. Is it melted completely or is there a chance I can save it? I've got it planted in Flourite and Ecocomplete mixture with 160w PC lighting. I set the tank up...
