Hello awesome community,

Looking to piggyback on your experience.

It is the first time I’ve gotten water lettuce to give extra hiding spots for my shrimp.
But it’s been a couple of weeks and I notice that leaves tend to melt and am wondering if it is normal.

The plants doesn’t seem to be dying, check out a picture below.

Thanks for the support!

Interesting.
Mine don’t get dunked, I have a lily pipe and the plants tend to stay on their corner.

They doesn’t seem to die but definitely lose leaves on a weekly basis.

Wonder if it has to do with water params:
  • 235ppm
  • 7.7 ph
  • 3 kh
  • 6 gh
And I dose EI

Oh, cool, I’ll pay attention as we transition out of winter.

I noticed also the roots melt and new ones come out but without much hairs so-to-speak
