Maybe I haven't let it adjust all the way yet, but I'm concerned about this section of my jungle Val. Seems I lose a leaf every other day and some of it is turning brown and clear.

I've only had it for 2 weeks. The other side of my 125, is doing fairly well, as is the middle section. Those 2 get indirect sunlight for an hour or 2 each day.

For lights I'm using 2 30" finnnex planted plus 24/7s on the 24/7 cycle. Rutabs root tabs, and ei method with gla micros and macros.

Let it adjust more or is something going on already?

I had the same experience with my Corkscrew Vals. It's common for Vals to lose some or all their leaves when trasported and planted in a new tank. That goes for alot of plant species as well. The older the leaf the longer it takes to go in my experience. I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you see healthy looking new leaves coming in they'll be fine.
