I've noticed that sometimes new tanks will develop a brown algae problem. Mine has always vanished on its own after a few weeks.

The leaves seem to be dying - are they getting enough light? Can you give us your tank size, the wattage of your light, and the name of the plant?

Do you happen to remember back when you first got the plants...would they stand up fine when they were out of water?

Aglaonema is not an aquatic plant, will doe in your tank.

Can't really tell what the plant in the picture is.
