    What kind of plants? What are the tank test readings? How much light do you have? Do you fertilize at all?

    Lighting : 2.5-3 watts
    Plants affected : anubias, cryptocoryne ciliata, and amazon sword.
    Dosing : Using a multi-nutrient like flourish, and potassium

    I only can test for nitrates its around 30 ppm. Also I've got carbon I can add but I haven't been adding it.

    I would try some root tabs first. Give it a few weeks and see if it improves. I really think you need to get some CO2 in there and probably some phosphorous. Try the root tabs first though.

    Yea rich I was thinking some root tabs would be good too. I've got a heavy fish load so I think phosphorus is abundant. I'm going to get some root tabs and dose easy on the carbon. Is there any root tabs you would suggest? Thanks for the quick response

    How long are they in the tank. They could be just acclimating by shedding some of the previous leaves that were already existing on the plant.

    my two favorites in my life.
