Hello everyone,

I believe that I have the same problem as Aeonflame. Here is a picture of it.
The leaf gradually turns brown until it falls off.

How much light does it get? do you use any fert and if so what type? JF is very easy to keep alive normally and the bulk of your plant looks pretty good.

How long has your tank been set up? That happened to me when my tank was newly established. Actually most of my java fern leaves were dead. I removed all of the dead leaves which was almost the whole plant! Eventually the plant came back with new growth and is thriving now.

my first one had the same problem, so i unwound the lead wire around the base, and it picked up, i removed the lead from the second one right away, and it has been fine also. (maybe just coincidental though)
