Troubleshooting Common Issues

Yellowing Leaves

Yellowing leaves can be a sign of nutrient deficiency. Ensure you're providing adequate fertilization and check your water parameters.

Algae Growth

Algae can compete with plants for nutrients. Regular water changes, controlled lighting, and maintaining a good balance of plant nutrients can help keep algae at bay.

Melting Leaves

Some plants, like Cryptocoryne, may experience "melting" when first introduced to a new tank. This is normal and usually temporary. Ensure stable conditions and the plant will recover.
