I just setup a small tank with ADA amazonia soil.

Most of the plants are melting. Especially blyxia japonica and crypts.

What have I done wrong ?

Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks

It's normal. Mine did the same thing when I first got the tank going. Give it a couple weeks and keep doing water changes and keeping stable conditions :)

FWIW, I've had some crypts just melt from looking at them the wrong way.
OK, that's an exaggeration, but they do melt when water parameters change, and from what I've read, and will experience, AS will change your parameters.

To tag along...I just switched to ADA AS too, and all my plants are melting! Cabomba, Ludwigia, Rotala, Crinum sp., even the Anubias sp. are all melting! What the!

2.5 WPG right now, EI dosing, pressurized CO2.
