New plant

Last week I got this plant, though the name escapes my memory. The bigger are starting to fall off, but the smaller leaves look fine. Is it just from the transfer to different tank? All my water parameters are normal, sorry for bad picture quality.Click image for larger version

Looks like a Val to me.. vallisneria of one type or another. The old leaves do turn yellow with age and then brown but new growth usually comes regularly from the middle. They send out runners with new plantlets on them, about every 3-4 inches along, so they'll spread.

It's pretty common for vals to adjust to new tank surrounding! If you are using any type of glut (liquid co2, like excel, easycarbo) please know that this plant won't respond well initially... Melting will be almost certain at first with these kind of products

Mine always start to melt after a couple of days, because i dose easycarbo and my water is very soft! It will always find a way to grow back
