  1. Default How to fix weak stems?


    0 Not allowed!
    For some reason a lot of the plants I put in my tank eventually need replacing because their stems have gone all weak and soft. At first I thought it was because the light wasnt reaching all the way down there, but ive seen tanks which are literally chocked full of plants, so surely this isnt the case?

    I have T5 lighting with JBL bulbs, Colour tube at the front and natural at the back. I use JBL Ferropol weekly fertilizer, I also have some Seachem Potassium which I havent used much as the JBL should have everything in it. I have tried with co2 and without and it doesnt seem to make much difference (I only had DIY, currently saving for a proper pressurized setup).


    29 Gallon: Veiltail Betta, White Cloud Minnows, Neon Tetras, Honey Gourami, Rummy Nose Tetra, Bolivian Ram, African Dwarf Frogs, Amano Shrimp

    6.4 Gallon: Halfmoon Betta

    Some plants can't handle fertilizers so that may be the case. What plants are in the tank and what fish and what plants afected???
    A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel

    I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.

    Is this happening to ALL the plants or just a select few? If its happening to just a few, what kind of plants is it happening to?

    If its happening and the plants are a type of Cryptocoryne, that's actually just a normal transition due to change in water conditions and the plants will grow back from the root stock.
