The Banana Sword was doing great up until I had a mad Algae Breakout, but even after that it still looked healthy for a month or two. Then within a course of two weeks it died. I change my fluorescent compacts every 1-2 months so i know they are not loosing their intensity. Since my tank is overstocked i do twice a week water changes of around 20% each... I just don't know what the problem is...

showing new growth but has stopped growing? that sounds like a oxymoron. the growth may be slower then you like. what is lighting dose schedule filter media etc etc? it could be lacking somewhere resulting in slow growth. pretty sure crypots arent known for their rate of growth either though

Lol I just confused myself! It was showing new growth, but the new "buds" have stopped are not looking too good, im going to do a water change tonight and add some fertilizer to the tank. My lighting schedule is 6 am to 10 pm. Yeah i know it's a long schedule but Its what time i get up and get home.
