New plants often lose the existing leaves which is fine provided new leaves are appearing. This is due to a couple of factors; how they are propagated by the nursery, and the simple fact of different water parameters/light. I would like to know the answer to the above questions though, as the initial setback can become permanent if light/nutrients are not sufficient. A photo of the tank might help too.
I have a Glo T5 HO Linear Fluorescent Lighting System Single bulb with a Coralife 80413 6700K T-5 High Output Fluorescent Lamp, 39-Watt bulb.
This has not always been a planted tank but has been for quite a few month's now.
I have the seachem flourish tabs that I just put in a few weeks ago as well as the liquid version.
The sword has died back multiple times and always ends up turing brown.
