Hello, I have a few moss balls(Marimo. Named the largest Dan after Dan Marino) that have started browning in spots. I read that i can vacation them in the fridge to help this. (Tank is at 78F) do I only leave them in there for 24h or can I leave them longer. Also is there any fertilizer that they like. Besides temperature and light (they are mostly shaded within the tank) is there any other reasons for them to be browning. I have stopped using excel and liquid carbon with them in the tank (I think it hurts them but I could be wrong I don’t actually know). any guidance would be wonderful!
I setup a 40 gallon breeder in August with a clump of java moss and some potted sagittaria. The java moss doubled in size but over the past two months I have noticed large sections of brown with new growth in random places. I have a Planted 3.0 running 14 hours a day at full power. Last week I reduced it to 8 hours at 60%. There is also a bit of green hair algae in it. Hopefully that will be reduced with the new light schedule. If you have any recommendations please let me know. I can provide more info as well.
