Hey everyone,


On 04/18 I started my first planted tank. With some ups and downs I finally understand what is needed to have it thrive.

Going in the right directions, I now want to know what to do of my dead leaves. I know cutting them off short allows them to grow back even better - and I’m ok with that specifically with my Anubias that do not have that many leaves. But it’d be sad to remove all the leaves of my Java Ferns (which look like they’re all being affected / all dying- judging from the picture).

Do I have to cut them off - or can I hope they’ll heal and be better? What is considered a “dying leaf” - is a couple holes and brown patches considered dying - thus needs to be cut off?

Thanks

I tend to only remove leaves that 1/4 of it is damaged, otherwise it just stays on unless I find that it ruins the entire scape.
