Plants going brown


Recommended Posts

G'day All,

I have Val, Wisteria and Anubias in my Tropheus tank. The Val and Wisteria has been growing nicely.

When I got home today though I noticed that the Val and Wisteria have turned slightly brown in parts. They looked great yesterday.

The only thing I have done between yesterday and today is increase the daily light time from 8 to 9 hours ( I have 4 36w gro-lux globes, tank is 5ft long, 20 inches wide, 24 inches high).

I fertilise once a week with Seachem Flourish and there are fertiliser balls under the sand for the Val.

Since the tank is for Trophs the pH is 8.5 and the kH is 16.

Has anyone got any ideas about why the plants are going brown and what I can do?

Thanks for your help everyone, I know I ask heaps of questions.

I have the same problem in my tropheus tank. I just put it down to the water being so hard. I aint no plant expert, in fact i know nothing. I would also like to know why
