  1. I was out for the weekend and came back to my Java Fern in distress.... I regularly dose with easy green and iron twice a week, lights on for 8 hours a day on a timer. The only recent change I made was add a few ottos and few more plants but that was over 1.5 weeks ago. There is still brown diatoms presents, but I did see green hair algae appear. I plan to reduce the easy iron to once a week to reduce the green algae. No CO2. Can I save my java fern? This Java Fern is 7 weeks old... I had been doing great up until i got home today. Also, there is a little clipping from the main plant that is doing well.... I am very puzzled.
  2. I have a Java Fern that I added to my tank a couple weeks ago. It's attached to a piece of driftwood. I initially attached it with a couple of rubber bands. There is a gap in the driftwood that I put the roots into. First question is how long does take for it to attach? I had it out today during a water change to see it better, and the roots have definitely gotten longer and seem to be growing towards the drift wood , but it doesn't seem attached yet. I removed one of the rubber bands, but I don't want to remove everything too soon, and the java fern ends up floating. The other question is about the brown spots on it. When I initially added it to the tank there were a few of the leaves that got really browned out and I removed those particular leaves. I have been adding Seachum Flourish to the tank once weekly. I have read that some spotting is normal. This is my first plant, so not sure what is bad or good. 🙂 Don't want to go snipping things that are ok. Here a photo of the plant: Can see the one leave with browning on the tip and the other to the left of it with more. https://photos.app.goo.gl/qc22pQ46waECg7TQ6
  3. New to the hobby and trying to figure out what is wrong with my el niño fern. Some of the older leaves are very pale (new growth is all really green) and I’m noticing some dark spots/holes on the older leaves as well. Any suggestions are appreciated!
  4. This is happening in two different tanks my Java Fern is turning brown and looks like it's dying but had lots of plantlets
  5. I have some black streaks and marks on both Java ferns, and some fuzzy brown stuff on some of the crypts. Is this part of the “ugly duckling” phase? Or do I have something starting that I need to take control of? This is my first tank ever, we are getting close to being cycled.
  6. Good Morning Everyone, Wondering if anyone experienced can look quickly at the pictures and let me know what's going on? The plant in my 10 gallon have just started to develop these blotchy areas. If I had to guess, I'm thinking it has something to do with the intensity or duration of light. However they seemed happy for months before all starting to do this. Just wanted to make sure I understand what's going on before trying to remedy the situation. Thanks in advance, Grant
  7. Please advise . I feel my plants are not looking well . I dose co op fertilizer every water change . Should I trim off brining leaves ?
  8. Hello, I have java fern in a 20 gallon long with NICREW SkyLED Aquarium Light for Planted Tanks, Full Spectrum Freshwater Fish Tank Light, 12 to 18-Inch, 12-Watt as the light source. The moneywort and anubias and java moss grows fine along with a few other plants that i dont remember their names. And duckweed so much duck weed (i dont corral it so its all over the top of the tank except for the sponge filter bubble areas.) The issue is my Java Ferns keep turning brown and leaves die and develop holes in them and they keep propagating off at the tips of their leaves. I dose easy green and flourish potassium and run nitrates around 20 ppm. Are the roots (not the rhizomes) supposed to be buried in the substrate? Are they getting to much light? (if so how can i shade them) any tips will be helpful. (they were attached to a rock but i took them off when they started looking horrid and now they rest on the substrate like the Anubias. I run CO2 and the substrate is black sand with root tabs. ph is a 7.6 water temp is 76F ammonia and nitrite and chlorine 0 tank has been up almost a year. Inhabitants are mystery snails, bladder/pond snails, ramshorn snails, cherry shrimp, 2 assassin snails, and a betta. I cant find mylasian trumpet snails to add to the little pest snail haven. (the snails never really get on the java ferns they stay on the moss balls and tank walls and substrate and are fed veggies and fruits)
  9. Hey, about a week ago I ordered some Java Fern from aquarium co-op and I was wondering if it was normal that the Java Fern browns initially when introduced to a new tank. I would like to hear about other people’s experiences and tips if this isn’t a common problem.
  10. Can anyone diagnose this issue? I have some Windelov Java Ferns that don't seem to be doing well (see pics). The leaves have black blotches (not spots, but large blotches). I use Easy Green and recently started using Easy Iron, too. I dose in accordance with Aquarium Coop recommendations. I've even started to add a little bit more, just in case. My research tells me that it's a potassium deficiency, but wouldn't they get enough from the two ferts I'm already using or should I supplement with something like Flourish Potassium? Both plants in the pictures are attached to driftwood and not planted in the substrate. Thanks!
