    10 Gallon Tank Strange Patches on Java Fern

    Will do! I haven’t really cleaned it before so I’ll start doing that. If that doesn’t work, I’ll be back here again. Thank you again!

    10 Gallon Tank Strange Patches on Java Fern

    So I went to pull any rhizome out from the substrate, but all that was holding it down were a few of those tendril things the fern grows that have snaked pretty far into the substrate; none of the rhizome was below the gravel. It probably got unburied during one of the water changes, but I don’t...

    10 Gallon Tank Strange Patches on Java Fern

    The rhizome is not buried, only anchored to the substrate. As near as I can tell, this stuff isn’t harming the plant at all, but I’m a newbie to any kinda of aquaculture so I can’t be sure. If it is algae, how should I get rid of it, and wouldn’t it also show up on the other leaves of the...

    10 Gallon Tank Strange Patches on Java Fern

    No, I’ve been very careful to leave the rhizome mostly free. There's only enough buried to keep it anchored in place. You mean the activated carbon in the filter? I only just added that a couple days ago, and this has been going on for over a week, so I don’t think that’s it. Also, if I take...

    10 Gallon Tank Strange Patches on Java Fern

    That’s possible. I have no idea how old the plant itself is since I bought it full grown. Or maybe it's getting too much light? It’s just a weak LED strip built into the lid, but it runs for 9-10 hours a day. Also, I forgot to add that my substrate had a lot of nutrients added to it...

    10 Gallon Tank Strange Patches on Java Fern

    But wouldn’t melt show through the leaf? I’ve seen pictures of melt, and I’m pretty sure this isn’t it. Also, would it still propagate new plants if it didn’t have nutrients? It just dropped a new one yesterday.

    20 Gallon Tank Java Moss and Java Fern questions

    I don’t think the white fuzz is a bacteria bloom, or at least not one that’s a concern. It's only growing on the moss attached to the driftwood, and the driftwood itself, and a lot of places say that’s normal for driftwood. I don’t know if it will help with the little hairs growing on the fern...

    20 Gallon Tank Java Moss and Java Fern questions

    This is my first time doing live plants in an aquarium, and everywhere says Java Fern and Java Moss are super easy. My tank is a little over 4 weeks old, with the plants being a few weeks in, and with a few Zebra Danios and Corydoras, the chemicals are fine (pH is about 7, nitrites and ammonia...

    I think that's it. They look identical to a google search, anyway. Awesome, thanks!
