    All my plants are dying in my tank... They are freshwater plants, my water is at 78-80 degrees, the fish are fine, but the plants are not... I think they have enough substrate too... What's going on? The died within a few days.

    First I'd check your lighting, what are you using now?

    No advice, I'm just following.

    It's hard to want to give advice here, there's so little info. Advice would be like writing up the entire book explaining all of aquarium keeping.
    plant density
    water quality
    water chemistry

    sure your plants are dying, and any of the above and a lot of what's not above could be a problem

    If you could provide us with a little more info we may be more helpful at giving advice. ;)
    What type of plants do you have? What type of lighting are you using? Are you dosing any ferts?
    Are they new plants? Some plants are prone to melt when introduced to a new environment

    Sorry for not getting back to you guys I was so worried of putting TOO MUCH fertilizer in my tank that I was putting TOO LITTLE of it in, & my plants suffered the cost. However, I'm following the directions exactly now & giving my plants the proper dosage & they are fine! Thank you all so much - and sorry for the horrible lack of information when I posted this question!
