Hi. Nice! I love the sand.. I have a feeling that those two plants ain't fully aquatic plants which means overtime it will die regardless of fertilisers.. I would stop using the fertilisers all together before u get algae issues..

It's not uncommon for Lps to stock non-aquatic plants. I dunno, that's my opinion. We will wait for someone who's an expert on plants.

Both are not fully aquatic

The one on the left is an Aluminium plant and the one one the right is Purple Waffle plant

Unfortunately both are often sold by LFS

Can they harm the fish? Does it matter?

I would stop fertilising them, cause it isnt going to make them last longer, and it will cause you algae issues

The plants are going to die, might be a week, might be a bit longer, it will not be long enough to benefit from being fertilized

Fertilizing them is wasting your fertilizer, keep it for your next fully aquatic plants, cause using it on these one is useless. All the fertilizers will do is give you algae issues.

So your money doesnt go to waste I have read articles and forums of people planting the plants in small trays that water can circulate through. attaching them to the top of the tank and letting the plants grout out of the top. Basically the roots are below water and the plants are above. Its natural filtration. The plants survive and you get the benefits of the roots taking waste out of the waste.
