Just leave it unless it looks worse and pluck it off. The plant will look as if its dieing off for a while then purk back up. Also are you using eny fertilizer?

Vinegar Smell?

I have been collecting rocks for my aquarium. I tested them with vinegar, and everything was good. But now the vinegar smell won't get off the rock! I have been soaking it all morning and scrubbing. Will it harm the fish?

Edit: Sorry! I thought I clicked create a new thread!

I have the brown algae stuff, too. It's starting to lessen after a few months of being cycled... I think it's just a new tank thing. I just wipe it off. I've added a ton of live plants in hopes that they'll eat up all the nutrients before it can get to the brown algae, but I can see right now that it's starting to grow again on my bridge decoration.

No, I just have my plants in the gravel. The guy who sold it to me said it wasn't necessary.

The rhizome of an anubias should be above the gravel. Only the roots can be below (but don't have to be - the whole plant can be out of gravel), if that makes sense. Not sure if you have it like that already - but if the rhizome (the brown thing the roots are growing off of) is buried, the plant will die.

If it's not already, tie it to something with fishing line or thread. It looks good like that. :)

Thanks for letting me know. I just took the whole thing out of the gravel. The way it's positioned, it shouldn't move much, so I'll leave it be.
