OMG...My New Java Fern Leaves are FUNKY
FUNKY WITH A CAPITAL F....what is going on???
So I got a java fern which i discovered were actually two java ferns and have been growing fast. each plant has three new leaves on it plus a third older leaf fell off and is turning into a new plant. Now here is what confuses me, my new leaves in my 10 gallon tank have edges torn or eaten out of them but they are still growing big and fast. I don't know if my snail is eating the new leaves or what, I feed him constantly so it's not from lack of food. Also the tips of the leaves are dark green, the newest leaf i have on one of the ferns doesn't have the chunks missing from it yet so I am keeping a close eye on it. Will those gaps ever fill in? Is this normal? Is my snail eating them when they are tiny? I'm not sure what's happening to my baby leaves.
