Hey everybody,

One of my anubias plants has what looks like stem rot. The rot first showed up at the stem of a leaf so I snipped the leaf off. A little of the rot remained, however, and seems to have spread through a section of the plant but not the entire rhizome.

I pulled it out of the aquarium but had two questions. Are the little fungi cells still floating around in my aquarium looking to infect other plants, and if so, is there anything I can do about it? Also, can I cut away the entire infected section of the rhizome and replant the unaffected part, or is it a total loss?

Thanks,

Curt
