View Full Version : Brown leaves what to do?

So resently a few of my swords and cryps have started to show brown both along the egdes and the middle of leaves. What should i do? Also i just added a CO2 diffuser to my tank if that helps trouble shoot. I also have a sand substrate.

Make sure you have good lighting and the plants are getting fertilized. I don't know much about plants...YET

Good Luck!

If your tank has been recently set up, I would think it's diatoms. It's a natural occuring thing in new tanks, safe for fish and not at all a problem other than unslightly until it goes away. Most of it can simply be cleaned off with your fingers and the glass wiped off with paper towel.

Keep up with it and it won't get too bad.

they have the lighting they need i think and i have them by root tabs. Unless can you have to many plants for a tank. I have 2 watts per gallon, and all my plants are for low to moderate light so i think the light is good too.

Ok thanks for the help
