Dawn T Posted November 20, 2021 Share Posted November 20, 2021 The Bucephalandra in my little 5g shrimp tank looks funky. I'm not sure if it's normal for this species or due to a deficiency, so I thought I'd show all of you a photo. This is the first time I've had this plant. It's in a low-light setup (better light on order to boost to medium lighting). Water parameters are stable, with nitrates right at 10 ppm as of this morning. The Crypt wendtii "tropica" and Anubias nana "petite" are growing well and appear normal, but I know that doesn't necessarily mean there aren't any deficiencies in the tank for THIS plant. So, is this an unexpected but normal color pattern for Bucephalandra, or am I dealing with a nutrient deficiency the other plants just aren't as likely to show? Oh, forgot to mention, there's also Crypt parva in there. It's so slow growing, I'm not sure if it's actually growing, but it's not melting or showing any odd coloration.
