Cleaning the planted aquarium
So I have a betta in a 3 gal filtered aquarium. I have a Java Fern and some Cyperus Helferi grass. Couple of questions:
1. my java fern has some brown spots on the leaves. I know it is slow growing and I have 1 new leaf coming up but I'm afraid that the old leaves are going to die before any new ones come up. Rhisom is not covered and I use the Flourish Complete twice a week.
2. When I do my 1/2 and 3/4 water changes and I use the siphon sometimes these plants become uprooted. Is this harmful? Should I not vacuum around them?
Thanks for your help. Live plants are new to me.
