  1. Hey Guys, I'm fairly new to fish keeping and doing it with live plants. Last week I got in some Anubias Barteri that I super glued to a rock and in about 7-9 days the rhizome has disolved/rotted. I'm really not sure what I did wrong. Nitrates haven't always been high but I wasn't sure if that would dissolve the rhizome first or if leaves would die if it didn't have enough nitrates. I'm using easy green to fertilize it as directed 29 gallon tank with. I got Moneywort, Javafern, and Dwarf Hairgrass the other plants seems to be doing great aside from some melting from the Dwarf Hairgrass Any help would be appreciated Thanks,
  2. I'm talking about this because ACO's most recent newsletter was about it. This is a cautionary tale. A few months ago I bought some anubius from a trusted source and put it in a tank that already had quite a bit of anubius in it. (Okay, so I didn't quarantine it. Guilty.) It quickly started losing leaves. After a few days of this, I checked the plant more closely and noticed that the rhizome was now mushy. I googled it and learned that this was known as anubius rot disease. It's considered uncommon, however it can spread to the other anubius in the tank. Unfortunately this was my experience. Even though I immediately removed the infected plant, I ended up losing all the anubius in that tank within a couple of weeks. I have a lot of anubius in all my tanks and, because it took out plants that had been in there and healthy for months, I'm pretty sure they were infected by the new plant and it wasn't anything I did--if I ignore the fact that I didn't quarantine the new plant. Please note that I still don't quarantine plants.
