    maybe they are acclimating to your tank. Hornwort for instance, is notorious for shedding all leaves when moved to different water conditions, but new ones eventually regrow.

    Three days is nothing, Slow down, Don't panic and give them a few weeks to settle in and acclimate.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Ok its been 1 full week, they still look as though they are struggling i have them floating none are planted. One wisteria has a lot of roots but has black tiny spots and leaves are brittle. They other two wisteria have leaves but no roots. Same with anacharis, leaves are going clear still and has a tiny root. Should i do anything or just continue to let them go. I use 1ml of flourish in my 10 gallon a week

    What temperature is your tank?
    Both plants prefer cooler water.

    Seachem Flourish is a product line, not a single product. I'm guessing you're referring to Comprehensive, but what specific product are you using?
    If you are using Seachem Flourish - Excel, stop for now and purchase new plants.

    right! Excel is lethal to some plants. Anacharis is one of them, not sure about wisteria. That was my first guess before I even saw if you were dosing anything or not.
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
    125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
    75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
    60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

    76 degrees is a bit warm for both plants. If you start at lower temps, then increase slowly, they should do better for you.
    Eight hours light with more light quality would be better as well.
    When I was a kid, decades ago, I raised a LOT of elodea or anacharis using a combination of one fluorescent strip light and one incandescent strip light.

    Seachem Fourish Comprehensive is fine, at the recommended dosing.
    I suggest adding Seachem Flourish Trace, about once a week.

    If you go for mosses, I suggest skipping java moss. It grows too easily and just seems to expand over time until one day the tank is full. If you want to grow java moss, try a pickle jar on a window sill. Christmas, flame, willow, there are lots of others. If you want a mass to grow fry in, guppy grass (najas species) works really well. Until it clogs the intake on the filter.

    im just looking for a nice plant that will cover my log i have in the center of the tank. As far as the lighting the hood i have has one Flourescent bulb in it. T-8 Full spectrum 15 watt. I havent been able to find a dual hood to fit a 20in long 10 gallon aquarium so im stuck witht hat. Light is currently running 12 hours. and im using comprehensive once a week like a quarter of a cap full.



    Im bad at planning decorations i just think moss would look nice on the log and wisteria seems to be the only thing that will work in my tank thats bushy

    Anubias get bushy. Sort of. Clumps of bacopa makes a great bush. It has to be cut back and replanted when it curls over the top and starts across the top of the tank.
