Hi,

I just bought an Anubias barteri yesterday. It looked great in the store and when I put it in my tank initially. But now, the leaves seem to be curling.

Here is what the leaves look like:


Here is what I have done to it since I bought it:
1. I dipped it in potassium permanganate for about 15 minutes, then rinsed it off really well with plenty of water and Tetra Aquasafe.
2. Added it to my tank.
3. Added the suggested amount of Flourish.

I have a 29 gallon tank with 65 watts of lighting (2.24 Wpg) and DIY CO2.

All my other plants seem to be doing fine.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? Thanks!!!

Thank you for your help!

I think the yellowish tint you're seeing is dust from the gravel on the leaves. The leaves are a nice dark green without the dust. I am going to vacuum it all as soon as the tank is done cycling (any day now).

Thanks again!
