  1. I have an 8 gal tank with endlers , one betta, ramshorn snails and plants. Plants overall look healthy but some have developed holes in leaves. Don’t ever see anything eating the leaves. What is causing this?
  2. These stem plants, which I do not know the name of, were planted about a month ago. Holes have been developing and are now present in many of the leaves, but the newer leaves appear to be,, at least generally, hole-less (image). In searching, the reason for holes is insufficient K+. But, if this were the case, this plant must be much more sensitive than others in the tank because they do not have holes. Could the leaves be on the way to falling off due to adaptation to the plant being planted in the tank? The water parameters are 75 degrees temp, KH 4 drops (71.6 ppm), GH 9 drops (161.1 ppm), pH 7.8, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 20 ppm. My second question has to do with roots sprouting from the stem (image). In searching, I found that this is "normal" or, alternatively found that the sprouting is due to insufficient light, Again, if it were insufficient light, this plant must need quite a bit of light, as the other plants are thriving, Appreciate any comments on these two issues.
  3. Hello, I have a planted 180L tank. i have never used C02 or fertilisers. Ive noticed some of my plants like the Amazon swords and Java ferns are starting to get holes in their leaves which end up dying off. Can someone give me a safe solution/ product that will make my plants healthy as well as not harm my fish that are in there? thank you!
  4. Can anyone tell me why my plants are dissolving/ getting holes in them. I had no issues in a 16 gallon but I currently own a 60 gallon. So far its only happening with one of my plants.
  5. Can anyone tell me what could be causing the holes in the leaves?
  6. Over the last few weeks, I have some holes in my Dwarf Aquarium Lily, and Banana Plant. They started as pin hole size, and have gotten larger. Nothing added to the tank recently. My snail population seems to be growing, but I'm really trying to cut back on food. It's a 10g that was started in May; substrate was changed in July. My current stock list is: 6 Chili Rasboras, 7 Ember Tetras, 3 Kubotai Rasboras, Anubias Nana Petite, Crypt Wendtii Green, Crypt Parva, Rosette Sword, Bacopa Caroliniana, Anubias Frazeri, Crypt Lutea, Banana Plant, Ammania Gracilias, Pogostemon Stellatus Octopus, 5 Blue Dwarf Shrimp, 1 Nerite Snail, 6 Malaysian Trumpet snails. Consistently on a weekly basis, parameters are: 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrites, 40ppm Nitrates, 7.6 Ph. I dose Easy Iron three times a week, and Easy Green twice a week. I've been doing this for months now...so I haven't changed this weekly plan in a while. I do 20% weekly water changes. Lights are on a timer for 7 hours per day. It's been like this since day one. It's mostly these two....but it kinda looks like my Pogostemon Stellatus is slowly being affected. No other plants seem to be affected at all. Any thoughts?
  7. Hello everyone! Looking for some plant advice. 2 tanks with issues. I have holes in some of my plant leaves. Amazon sword in one tank and Java Fern in another. I’ve read that it could be potassium? Or lighting? The java fern leaves are worse. They look like they are being torn apart. I use easy green and root tabs (for the sword) and have Fluval 3.0 lights. Both are 29 gallon aquariums. Neither plant is new. Had them both for about 1 year.
