So in my case I am assuming the light is not bright enough and perhaps the substrate is not rich enough. I also cannot get Hygrophila to last in this tank, and that is light-related. But I also have very soft water, and have been using Equilibrium to raise this tank to 6 or 7 dGH. I think this is a combination of factors.
Thanks Byron. I do have root tabs right next to them. Both bulbs have but off several leaves each. With new ones coming up now. What do you do with the leaves with holes in them? Will they be okay like that? Will they continue to "fall" apart? Do you cut them?
