    I’ve had fish tanks since I was a kid. I just recently got into planted tanks. This was my first actual full on scape of a tank. It is a fluval flex 9 gallon. I bought some narrow leaf Ludwigia, Ludwigia inclinata, crypt parva, Anubias petite nana, and Monte Carlo. I am trying to do low tech using uns controsoil. There is new growth on the Ludwigia and Anubias but the bottom leaves on the Ludwigia keep falling off from what I suspect is my betta swimming and resting in between them. Also a few of the stem look like there melting on a couple of the Ludwigia. Also I few of the leaves on the Crypt parva are turning yellow. It this normal for a transition to a new tank and will the melting stop or should I just cut the leaves of the parva and replant? Thanks for any help!

    Plants that at are grown emersed usually melts when transitioned to submersed. For first few weeks it is normal for the old leaves to melts & new leaves will grow. For the stem to melts, based on my limited experience, this happen usually because the root failed to established. This happen if it is not planted properly into the substrate. I have Ludwigia sp "dark orange" which is quite hardy because if it is not planted properly, only the leaves fall off. I don't know if other ludwigia not as hardy as this one.

    . Ok thanks. Hope after I cut the stems and replant they take! They are a beautiful plant and would hate if they all melted!
