    I have noticed that for a few months now my plants seem to getting black spots on them and changing to a yellow / black and many new leaves falling off I was wondering if there was anyway of saving them . Tank details: Ph 6.8 nitrates 25 nitrites 0 Gh= very hard . Water temperature 23.5°c /74.3°f 15 gallon tank . The ammonia is low but I think it might have something to do with the ph and how acidic it is because my water hyacinths leaves are disolving . 20181101_215958.jpg20181101_220038.jpg20181101_220034.jpg20181101_220020.jpg

    First your ammonia should be zero
    Next what substrate do you have? Do you add any ferry?
    Dose spots are green spot algae

    It sounds like and excess of disolved organics or proteins i the water is causing the rot in your plants. The algae is caused by an imbalance if nutrients.

    I would trim off and dead or dieing parts of the plants and do a few 70%+ water changes for a couple of days
