By the way, just a trick when taking tank photos, do not use the flash. The photo will be clearer, plus the flash does startle fish.

Can you take a picture without using the flash?

Don't know if this helps or hurts. But I bought some pennywort and the stem parts of the plant once in my tank start to melt and turn to mush in a few days. I thought for sure I killed it. Eventually after a few weeks of floating in the tank the stems stopped mushing and it now has started to grow allot of roots. I had something similar on wisteria too. It takes time for the plant to recuperate.

Only thing I see wrong with that beautiful tank is theres not enough plants in it!! just get planting, some will survive, some won't. theres TONNES of room in there! maybe, as pointed out to me by Byron there could be an over fertilisation going on, with the flourish and root tabs etc. especially if there is only so little plant matter in there.

I feel your pain, it sucks when plants don't thrive, but there has to be something that will grow well in there! your fish are healthy I take it? and there are no extremes in temp, ph, or hardness etc?

throw about another 10/15 plants in there and a nice big piece of driftwood! lovely
