Scarlet Temple Melting


Recommended Posts

My scarlet temple I received on 12/25 has nearly melted all the leaves. My other plants I received have melted some as well but they are doing substantially better than the scarlet temple. Any advice? 

Tank Parameters:

pH:7

Ammonia <.25ppm

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate:0

Oh no 😞 it is could still be adapting to underwater conditions. I can't tell if there's new growth or not.. 👀 Ideally nitrates would be present, I'd recommend starting to dose fertilizer or more fertilizer if you already do. I aim for 10-20ppm nitrates from dosing a nitrogen-containing fertilizer like Easy Green. You may want to try some root tabs as well if you haven't already. They're awesome for heavy root feeding plants in gravel. For stem plants, I usually try to keep them under medium to higher light and they really thrive.

I've been dosing with API leaf zone and I use osmocote root tabs. The API stuff is mainly iron and potassium. I do have three groumis in there too to help with the nitrate. I'm also planning on a small school of corycats once my LFS can get them again.
