I have been having issues with my Nymphaea zenkeri waterlily recently. It lost the majority of its older leaves (they just sort of melted away over time) to what I assume was too low pH (5.5). Also, light was less than perfect (approx 50 par; dirt tank). Yesterday, I saw it floating at the surface of the water, no roots whatsoever. It had only a few leaves left, all new growth around 1 cm-2cm in size.

How can I save this poor fellow? I am guessing I will have to remove it from the water (since the low pH will probably just deteriorate its situation), but I am worried the new water conditions will cause the the leaves to melt.

Would appreciate your thoughts on how to go about saving what's left of this plant.
