I got some new plants for my 55 gallon tank a week or two ago, but I am experiencing some trouble with them. They were orders off of aquariumplants.com, they came in huge and bright green, as expected they started to die off a bit. Some roots turning brown, leaves becoming transparent, tips discoloring, and some limp leaves.
-I have 2.5 wpg, 142 watts total.
-Dose with Flourish Excel daily (except Sunday).
-Flourish Tabs Monthly
(Only 2 since I got them in June. Am doing early month doses now)
I do 3 water changes a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. All no more that 10% each time. Usually around 6%-7%. Is this to much? I do not have an ammonia problem, but sand does like to show the crap more than gravel.
In the past when I got new ones, they just had some tips turn brown, not this. Is there anything I can do?
What am I doing wrong
