| | stunted growth, plants are dying please help
This is krunal here,i am worried about my plants as they are dying and growth is minimal. please help me out, i am stating the whole scenario down under.
intially the tank did well for a month plants got in their aquatic state
the tank is 90*30*30 cm with garden soil capped with white pool filter sand
light is 18 watt 4 feet t5 led lighting for 8 hours a day ( untill yesterday, now its 2 led tube )
for CO2 ive got citric acid diy method gives 1 bps
i am dosing 4ml micro macro on alternate days and on sunday 50% water change
the plants are cabomba , rotala rot. green, rotala macrandra, didiplis diandra, hygrophilia compacta, bacopa caroliana. Livestock- A schooling of 9 rummynose tertras .
One problem I noticed is some plants are getting melted at the substrate, though roots and whole plants look normal.
