So my Anubias which I have had for 2 weeks now is slowly dying. The edges of the leaves are turning brown and shriveling up and I am not sure why. I fertilize the water, the tank is set to 80 degrees, the ph is 7.6, and my java fern is doing just fine. I mean the only thing I can think of is that we have lots of iron in the water since it's well water. What should I do about my plant? What's wrong with it?
If the rhizome is above the gravel and is not tied on to some cotton from the store, I would guess you have a problem with lighting. Most likely it's the rhizome. The rhizome nees to be out of gravel, like the java fern, and its roots need to be anchored to something or under gravel.
Also in the qt tank the leaves were sticking out of the water but even the ones IN the water have started turning bad. All leaves are underwater as well. Should I cut off the leaves that are rotting away? Should I remove the whole plant and toss it out?
I still supplement with CO2...trim the dying leaves off and see about some CO2 (you can get liquid CO2 for easy use), if you are using a normal fertilizer already it covers everything except potassium and CO2...I've never had to find extra potassium so I would doubt that it's your problem.
