Andy Aqt Posted March 4, 2022 Share Posted March 4, 2022 Hi everyone, I have a 4 weeks old 65 gallon planted tank with some Scarlet Temple from co-op. This is my first attempt at keeping red aquarium plants so I know I must have done something wrong here. Initially the plant was blooming with the deep red color with new roots shooting out and I love it. This is before the tank is completely cycle as well. but for the past 2.5 weeks the plants slowly turn into its current state, and I am more curious regarding the situation than frustrated as other “green” plants are all thriving. I added a few more red stem plant and dose some Flourish Iron by Seachem 7 days ago and other red plants also turn more green. I have potted dirt under sand as my gravel and I dose two pumps of easy green every other day as well. For light, I have 3hrs on 6hrs off then 4.5hrs on then off till 9am, I also have CO2 for the same period of time. I hope that I can still save the Scarlet Temples and looking forward to hear your suggestions. Thank you 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
