Need some help. Plants dying...I think.


Recommended Posts

This looks like a nutrient deficiency. Swords are very, very  heavy root feeders. I have one in my 29g that I surround with 4-5 root tabs every month.  
  Try trimming off the dying leaves close to the bottom of the stem, give it some root tabs and dose your water column with a liquid fertilizer regularly according your nitrate levels and watch to see if the new growth looks normal as it should.

Hello MarcoS, 

Amazon swords mainly feed from their roots so root tabs will be best for fertilization over liquid for the water column. It does look like it could be a combination of deficiencies so I included 2 images that helped me. To verify which one you can buy additional test beyond the standard strip/API master  (potassium, phosphate etc). When making a correction / adjustment remember to take some time and small adjustments to not over correct or too fast causing a greater issue, best luck.
