    If you’re asking about the dark, round things?

    I would guess snails.

    And how long was the plant in the tank?

    Melting of leaves is normal on a transplant and healthy if new leaves are appearing.

    If the plant has been in the tank awhile (months), you have a mineral deficiency. My guess is iron based on my limited experience.

    If you want informed opinions, post on the plants forum.

    I really cant tell what that plant is. Maybe an amazon sword?

    How long have you had it?
    Are you dosing ferts?

    I put it in about a week and a half ago.

    Dosing ferts?

    If you barely put it in then it’s probably just melting. It’s adjusting to your water parameters so it should grow back to normal in a few weeks.

    My plants leaves are now almost transparent. I've been told that's Iron Deficiency. Any suggestions on how to correct this without harming my Betta?

    SeaChem Flourish with Iron.

    Shop on Amazon.

    But some of it can be melting from the transplant.

    Do you have any new growth?

    Edit: you can try root tabs in the substrate, under the plants. Look at ingredients before you buy to see if they contain iron.
