I have a Fluval spec and I added java fern 3 months ago and they’re all dying and brown. I leave the light on for 10-12 hours a day and use seachem excel. Not sure if the light is just not bright enough but I hope I don’t have to go back to fake plants. Has anyone had this issue and what plants have you had success with the spec?
Thanks for the replies – the rhizome is attached to coconut husks and just sitting on the bottom of the tank. Not buried at all. I’m not sure what I could be doing wrong.. I have java fern also planted in my goldfish tank and it’s thriving. Only this tank is not doing well.
