hey there, recently i waged war against algae with blackout method and came out winning. but unfortunately, while all of my rotala survived, the leaves from the bottom up to middle sections of the branch were melted away, while the rest are fine...

i trimmed the healthy portions and replant it near the other clumps. but i'm wondering should i just uproot the original one since the branch does not have any leaves or i can patiently waiting for them to recover and will take some time as well?

what i'm afraid of is the branch decomposes and started leeching harmful substances to my water column...

here is the picture of the branch...

what do you guys think? i was planning to does a lean tropica specialised but still afraid of algae outbreak again, even of the smallest amount of ferts...

So what happened? I’m new to keeping rotala and just threw tons of it away and only replanted the tips. I’m kind of kicking myself for replanting so sparsely :(
