Hello all. Recently, I have just started my first planted aquarium. I have always wanted a planted aquarium because of all the benefits and the more natural look it provides.
I did plenty of research on how to go about starting and everything that I needed and felt that I was well prepared to begin.
However after about a week of being planted it seems as though most of my plants are dying.
Iím not sure what the cause is. Also some of my stem plants have accidentally uprooted and I noticed that those ones have no roots at all. So Iím led
to believe that none of the stems have started growing roots.
What should I do!!
My set up:
Iím using Tropica Aquarium Soil for my substrate.
I have the Finnex Planted + 24/7 Light.
I donít use any pressurized CO2
as I read that itís not necessary for the plants I have(However I do use flourish Excel in my tank daily that should provide liquid carbon)
I have also used Aqueon Aquarium Plant food to provide nutrients in the water.
Bacopa Caroliniana Red
Dwarf Hair Grass
