The leaves on my amazon swords are turning black what is wrong?
If you have any pictures they may help us figure out what's going wrong.
The more info we get the quicker the answers will come
It could be algae forming. Do you have a pic?
Doubt it is algae. I have a 15 gallon freshwater Amazonian habitat tank. LED lighting, and I have gravel and sand. It is also a relatively new tank.
I use a liquid based fertilizer by tetramin called flora pride and root tabs by seachem.
I also have dwarf sword plants and green Myrio which is fading despite having root tabs and liquid fert.
I'm thinking the lighting is probably inadequate. Hard to say without the specs on your particular lights but just by the eyeball test it doesn't seem bright enough.
Anyone know a good pair of inexpensive lights I could get that would help them grow? I'm on a college student budget.
