Anubia Rhizome Melt
I cannot figure out how it got in my 5gal tank, there had been no new plants, or decor, added when it started, but one by one all but 2 of my 6 Anubia died, and at least one of the remaining 2 is not looking so good. The leaves started yellowing, then the rhizomes melted completely. At least one of them stank when I pulled it from the tank. I'm just thanking God that I do everything to that tank last and so far the rot has not spread to my other 4 tanks.
From what I've read it's anubia rhizome melt and there's no cure, it could possibly effect the crypts that I have in the tank but I'm still unsure of just how true that is or if they are getting it mixed up with crypt melt. So far the crypts seem to be doing good.
Does anyone know how long whatever causes the rot last in the water column? I must have lost $50 or $60 worth of Anubia and I do not want to add more to the tank and run the risk of them melting. Right now all that's in the tank is anacharis, crypts, octopus plant, and 2 anubia one of which I suspect of having the rot.
