Your tank looks neat!! Great job! I just built a 52g, having it set up soon

I guess if I did a side by side from your previous pics, I can see what you're talking about but the tank still looks awesome!!
Is it possible that the plants melted in response to the new conditions and that they may still come back?
They didn't really melt, just got leggy with a lot of leave loss. I finally just removed all of it and replanted the few plants that were still doing well. I suspect you're right, though, in that the new conditions or just the move itself had something to do with it.
I did when I established them in this tank a few months ago. Didn't use them at all in the 36. Another "go figure" situation.
Maybe add some fresh tabs?
Odd that they were fine without tabs before....
Do you use any thing like seachem flourish or seachem flourish excel? I use both of those with mine....
I only ask because I had a smaller tank with s.repens and they did really well for a while, then I got bored with that tank and stopped caring for the plants. (I still did water changes of course) When the root tabs got old, or used up or whatever, and I was no longer using excel or flourish, the s. repens started doing what yours have done......
Thanks for the info. I'm currently using Excel daily and Flourish Comp weekly. Used to do the Comp twice a week, but I observed a noticeable decrease in algae when I cut it back to just once a week. Hopefully, I can keep that where it is.
Will definitely be adding a new round of tabs along with the new s. repens I plant today, though. Hopefully, they will take to this tank like they did the old one.
I figured you were using all that stuff....but I thought it was worth mentioning
Under the circumstances, I would think that your problems are due to the tabs needing replacing....BUT...that doesn't explain why they did so well in the other tank....
This is my 40 gallon breeder!!!! Thought we were Sharing haha
