Aquarium Plants dying after I place them in the tank

kumablue

Hi Guys, I was wondering why some of my plants are turning yellow its been a week since I placed them inside the tank
should I remove the plants or wait it out?
I have Java Fern, Anubias Barteri, Anubias Nana and Saggitaria
the java fern is almost all yellow with some roots on its leaves

I don't know about the others, but unless the Java Fern was raised fully submerged, it is normal for it to lose all its leaves before growing back.

That said, don't necessarily take my word for it, I'm generally pretty terrible at plants.

Yes they could be melting because of the new environment. Do you have them planted in the substrate by chance?

Anubias tends to turn yellow due to too much light, not enough ferts, or general stress, though in my experience, a ferts problem takes longer to show up. What's your lighting like, and is your anubias exposed directly to it?

It's common for plants to melt back when introduced to a new environment. They'll probably be fine if you'll give them some time. I would encourage you to remove any leaves that are obviously dead (not just yellowing, but DEAD).

What size tank, what type of light, what ferts are you feeding, what’s your WC schedule and percent u change, what inhabitants do you have in your tank. Can you show a full picture of your tank.
