I hav had 1/3 of my leaves die off. It starts with a weak brown spot right under the junction between the leaf and stem. I have been trimming them off when this happens and then yesterday I saw some white fluffy substance near the roots. Initially I thought that it was just damage from transport as it is a new addition to the tank. but now three weeks later i find 2 more leaves with the same problem. There is new root growth so IDK what to think.
I am just setting up the tank for the first time. temp is around 80F lights are high lighting. heavy initial planting. I measured my NO3 since my first post it was about 20ppm so i did a small water change that lowered it to about 15 I will do this again a couple times till I am around 10. I also noticed the white stuff was also growing on my DIY CO2 diffuser right where the CO2 escapes the tubing. Any ideas? I keep close track of my water chemistry so if you need to know anything ele let me know.
