hrm I'm not sure what is causing them to die so fast, do they have like parasites when they came in or something that is nomming on them? Perhaps they need certain care and lighting, what species do you have? I'll help you research info.

I dont think they have any parasites, wouldnt there be holes in the leaves if there were? Theres no holes just yellow leaves with brown tips, ill try to post a pic if it helps at all, and its mainly my amazon swords, the others , an umbrella plant( i know its not fully aquatic i found that out after i bought it!) and i dont remember the other ones name, but they arent as bad heres a pic

I just planted swords for the first time, they weren't looking to good til I upped my lights and added root tabs and ferts. What lights are you using? I upgraded to 2 10watt 6500k's. I also planted them in terracotta pots to raise up closer to the light which seems to help. my plants are looking alright now. They don't seem as easy as they're said to be :/

adding root tabs will probably do the trick, it worked for me.
