java fern

  1. Planted Betta Tanks
    So I bought some java fern from my local petland a few months ago and now it looks like some leaves are turning yellow and have black spots (not just the normal pearls/the under leaf parts) this seems to be when most people notice issues I've read. I can attach pictures but I'm not sure that...
  2. Planted Betta Tanks
    I did read about them I swear. I just forgot you cant do that oh man. They started browning so I googled them again and dug the roots out. I don't want them to die how do I save them? Its a ten gallon I didnt use fertilizer ( I could go get some though ) LED lights Not too exposed to the...

    How long does it take for ferns to attach to the driftwood? I purchased it, sanded it the best i can, and attached it by tying them with their own roots. And will the aqueon betta heater work for my tank?

    Ugh, I think I killed off my hair grass because most of it's white and it's not spreading. I've had it for a couple of months. I started using CO2 in my aquarium about two weeks ago and it has made an improvement. My java fern - a supposedly slow-growing plant - has 10 new babies growing from...
  5. Betta Fish Care
    The slime is clear. I just changed the water and scrubbed the slime off with a aquarium sponge from petsmart. Also, I have 3 baby plants(java fern), so what should i raise them in, a plastic clear cup with a lid and dosage of fertilizer, or a clouded plastic tube that contained my lucky bamboo...
  6. Betta Fish Care
    I accidentally added too much fertilizer(API Plant Food, liquid). Will it harm my java ferns? I have 4, 2 babies that sprouted from the leaves, one that has no leaves, but its rhinozome, and one that has two leaves. It turned the tank water a light yellow. It is a medium kritter keeper(a 3.2...
  7. Planted Betta Tanks
    I decided to plant my Aqueon 2.5 mini bow recently. I just added an anubias nana and a java fern today. The java fern I bought from Petsmart turned out to be one large plant and one itsy-bitsy one that I don't think I'll be able to fully plant anytime soon, so I've left it floating. The java...
  8. Planted Betta Tanks
    Ok, so I have a Java Fern (wendelov?) that's been in my tank for a week now. Lots of the leaves are turning black, and I can't figure out why. It seemed to be doing fine earlier. Also, all my hairgrass seems to be turning a clear/brown. Its all in my 10g, and the hairgrass has been in there...

    I just moved Oberon from his old 1.5 to a 2.5. Fake Mopani driftwood, 1 fake plant, 1 real java fern and 4 real water wisteria stems. I'm thinking about maybe adding some anubias or a Marimo ball, what do you guys think?

  11. Planted Betta Tanks
    Okay so I'm a complete newbie. To aquariums and to plants. Mainly plants. These are the first plants I've ever kept, aquatic or otherwise. They've been in my 10 gallon for about 3 weeks as my tank is cycling. I've had one plant die but the rest have been what I figured was healthy. The plants in...
  12. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    In my other threads, I had been stressing immensely over how my betta would survive w/o food for an entire week while I was on vacation. (everyone said he would be "fine", + blocks & auto feeders are iffy & I have no good experience w/ those auto feeders) SO, I left him with no food & my deepest...

    Wow I post a lot. Sorry, guys :c Getting into the cycling/dividing thing is confusing @[email protected] But! Ive been mulling over the prospect of getting one or maybe two live plants for my divided 5 gallon hex. Its currently drying because I just sealed the divider in, but in a few days it will be host to a...

    I bought two bettas about a month ago. One is in a "Betta Tank" and the other is in a 1gal tank. I had originally put some live plants i both tanks and took them out when they started turning brown. I now have some Java Ferns ( four of them) but i have to idea how long they should be...

    So I picked up a new test kit at petco today, and they had a sale on live plants.. I picked out three healthy looking java fern (labeled tropica fern, microsorum pteropus).. I searched the forum but couldn't find a thread on the general care of aquarium plants (might make a good sticky if...

    Hello Everyone. I am proud owner of 3 Betta fish. 2 girls we think (Chilli & Lilli) and 1 boy (Sushi). We are having a hard time figuring out if Chilli is a boy or girl even though the fish store owner said she was a girl (she flares a lot at Sushi). At first we had Sushi in a 1 gallon bowl and...
