I'm a bit concerned about the curly leaves. Anyone else concerned?
Did you barely get the sword?
It was in my other tank 2 ish years, moved to this tank 3 ish months.
Has it always been that small? If so I'm surprised its lasted that long. This is my melon sword after about 1 year. Has it always been that small? If so I'm surprised its lasted that long. This is my melon sword after about 1 year.
What's your fertilizer schedule? Do you use root tabs?
Osmecote tabs, liquid potassium, iron, and trace weekly. To slow this down some. It is at a depth of 24"
I almost can't believe you had it for 2 years... if you truly have had it that long props for keeping it alive that long. But in all seriousness are you fertilizing or using root tabs? The root tabs would get this plant going much better than it is as long as its growth hasn't been stunted.
Lol, I've had it that long. Notice the red color? That doesn't happen by itself. Maybe it just needs more ferts.
Same here. I had one for a year in my 20 and it grew too big I had to take it out.
What ferts are you using?
With such a deep tank, your lighting may not be enough. It sounds like you're fertilizing enough.
Ok I see now. I agree with the above post it could be lighting. What type of light do you have??
I agree it sounds like an issue with your lighting
Ok, maybe. I was hoping magnesium or something. I thought the red in the leaves indicated lights were in the ballpark. Thanks
The red could be from the iron though. Just spitballing ideas. It does look small for being over two years old, and deep tanks are harder to light.
What light are you using?
4 x 36" led 6500k, can't fit more, not quite ready to upgrade, tank is 40" x 20", My real concern is the crumple curl in the leaves.
What brand is the light?
