I bought 3 of these "banana plants" almost a week ago for Hoshi's tank:



and already the leaves seem to be turning a little yellow, and developing a few brown spots. They were really gorgeous and thriving when I got them just a few days ago!

Hoshi's tank is a 2.5 gallon, is about 4 feet from a window with medium- bright filtered light. And about a foot away from his tank I keep a lamp on with a 23watt fluorescent bulb.

What can I do to keep these plants thriving without harming Hoshi?

Thanks~

We will need to know more, lights, age of lights, any additives to the water, and are they planted like in your picture?

i already listed everything i know about the lighting. the bulb is pretty new. maybe a couple months old?

also, i didn't think it was planted in that picture. mine look just like that, they are not planted. just sitting on top of pebble substrate.

thank you. ^_^

I haven't personally had them but I think that it may be the lights not being powerful enough. Pm Oldfishlady and give her the link, she will know more than me.

These plants are high light, they will not even survive in anything less than 20 watts IME they all died when I had them in 15 watts but now they are in a more high light tank and they are thriving
