That's lousy! How long were the plants in your tank?

:( that sucks.

How many watts and what was the size of the tank? What kind of substrate? Maybe they needed CO2.

What was the temp and what additives did you put in the tank? How long have you had the plants and how long do you leave the light on everyday?

Frogbit is a floating plant and i've had it die from too much light and not enough nutrients in the water.

Amazon swords need lots of light and a rich substrate to do well.
