| | Java Fern (Microsorum Pteropus) Dying
Just read ms Walstad book and gave a lot of good information about plants to have with my neocaridina shrimps here in Brazil.
My aquarium is a 5gal with probidio shrimp soil (2cm) (pH 7, TDS 220, KH 2). Shrimps are healthy and in their first round of breeding (3monhts aquarium). It's located next to a window that receives 2-3 hours direct sunlight at 3-6 afternoon.
Fauna: Around 10 yellow neo caridina shrimps, 16 nerite snails clenchi and zebra (I know, a lot, but I love them) and some really small pondsnail that sometimes appears (I remove them when I can).
Flora: Java moss, one Anubia Barteri and one Java Fern.
They came with a lot of black algae that disappeared in time (thanks to ms Walstad hints).
My problem: Java Moss is growing very fast, even the Anubia is growing beautiful, but the MP is becoming brown and not growing.
What can I do? Maybe too many plants in the aquarium?
