    Question Brazilian Micro Sword dying?


    0 Not allowed!
    I noticed today that the Brazilian Micro Sword I planted a couple weeks ago has turned brown (mostly at the tips, some in the middle).. I touched one and it broke off.

    Does this plant melt?

    I have 2 T5 HO bulbs, 6500K and 6700K running 7 hours per day. (I just bumped it up to 12 tonight)

    Also, I planted in small bunches rather than large clumps.

    What size tank? What wattage bulbs? What kind of substrate? Is there any new growth?

    29 Gallon tank

    Seacham Flourite black substrate (two bags of regular and one bag of fine cap)

    The lighting, all I know is the K's I have there. I thought with T5 wattage was not as good of an indicator as K?

    Cabomba has been thriving.. Swords seem to be fine. The micro-sword is not shaded by either.
