    Seems that I can get the Downoi to grow decent, then if I remove the plants to grow more all disappear. { space them out }


    The Pantel has been on and off for about a year , gets decent then looks like somebody came along and beat the hell out of it, lower leaves turn nasty brown,then go away and stem does not look good at all, further Japonica turns real small in this tank.


    Thanks for any help


    A few pics of the Japonica , Pantel and well the Downoi I planted 3 weeks back doing okay but afraid to move them.

    Are you using RO water? I have never been able to get downoi going in nothing less than tap and gravel. There are a lots of myths about this plant.


    Where this thread is going though:


    co2


    Pantanal looks like it needs it, leaves should get broader, not curve down.


    Your blyxa is looking very good imo
