Clean Plants??

I have a 90G tank with discus and angelfish in it and i HAD some nice plants in there but they seem to die and get dirty often... Is there any way I can keep my plants alive and keep them clean? Am i suppose to take it out and rinse or is there a easier way? ;o

More information is needed to give you a better answer . What type of lighting and wattage are you using ? What type of plants ? Are you injecting CO2 ? Dosing with ferts ? Water Parameters ?

Without any info , there is no way to help you properly and give a suitable solution .

I concur. with brimac

to keep them clean you need a cleaning crew. to keep them alive, you need ferts, the right substrate(be it planted or really dirty, plants dont care) possibly carbon dioxide and your lighting.

How many plants are in the tank? it sounds like nutrient issues.
