ID:	248277 why is it turning like this? I have a co2 in there and a single bright marineland led 24-36 in my ten gallon. What is the problem and how can I fix it?

swords enjoy massive amounts of iron, and without it, they get long, stringy, and yellow. almost any root tab would work.

Agreed on the root tabs. Also, what is your water hardness? And do you change water regularly? Calcium deficiency will cause the deformed leaves you see.

I don't test hardness, is that recommended? And I do water change sometimes like around once a month

You should be doing a weekly partial water change for the health of your plants and fish. I would start with that and see if the deformed leaves stop. If they don't, then you might want to test your water hardness.

The amount of your weekly water change should depend on your stocking level. You can use Aqadvisor website as a good starting point and then adjust the amount as necessary depending on your nitrate levels.

Nobody mentioned anything about the singlebright? those things can't even grow algea... You should get a double bright or the new advanced LED strip light

For Led lights I think a lot of people use Finnex lights or Current USA Satellite Pluses. Or if you want to spend even more, a Build My Led or the Exotic E series, but I don't think your tank needs the last two.

Yeah even a Aquaon modular with 2 or 3 bulbs would work, 2 would probably be fine, just not the single bright.
