Hi all,

I recently set up a 10 gallon betta tank with live plants. Overall it's been going pretty well, however, two bundles of plants I had shipped to me are a bit puzzling; they came a bit yellowed and shocked. The plants that came like this haven't really improved, however there is new growth.

My question is, should I cut out/remove the yellowed plant material or should I let it be since there is new growth?

Here are the plant types if that helps at all in giving advice:
Dwarf Baby Tears (one bundle is doing really well, the other came very yellowed)
Rotala Indica (again, one bundle is doing great, the other came very yellowed)

Thank you ^-^

I don't think yellow leaves ever recover, so you might as well trim them off. I usually just toss plants that look that bad, or plant them, then cut off almost all of the tops, hoping the roots will survive.

Leafs in bad condition drain energy from the plant. If you see new growth cut the bad leafs off, the plant is gonna do well..
