java fern

  1. Yellow and spotty java fern?

    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. I buried my java ferns roots... help

    Planted Betta Tanks

  3. Java Fern questions

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    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?
  4. Any suggestions for fast growing background plants?

    Planted Betta Tanks
    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. Slime in tank

    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. Java Fern

    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. Newly-Planted 2.5 Gallon Question

    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. Java Fern turning black?

    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...

  11. Is there something wrong with my plants?

    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. Tailbiting PROBLEMS!!!

    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...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Wow I post a lot. Sorry, guys :c Getting into the cycling/dividing thing is confusing @[email protected] But!

  16. New Betta Owner Tank Question

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    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...
