Hi Friends,

My four feeter planted aquarium is about 100 days old with ADA Amazonia substrate with Powersand still had no success in maintaining healthy Aquarium. This time the problem is Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini. On initial planting they stay pretty good for about a week.,Later on leaves turn Grey/blacking in color looked like burned & twisted leaves.. Thought of poor circulation with my Dophin C1300 canister.. changed to Ehiem 2217 circulation is doing well..

Had tried Naesea sp Golden Pedicillata.. the same issue came... plucked them off too..

Water Parameters

Weekly 50 % Wc
PH - 6.2 on injection of Co2
GH - 9 ( using Tom Barr GH Booster)
KH - 3

Many of the issues I've seen here are CO2 and light related, not the ferts or sediment, because you have ample amounts in both cases.


I'd focus strongly on providing good stable CO2 levels.
Do not assume the drop checker is correct or that you have enough based on it's reading.
