Re: thin brown appendages on Java ferns
[I've changed the subject to something more descriptive...]
I've seen this question asked (including by me) several times in the archives, but never once answered! ;)
Those are "leaf babies". It's a way that the ferns propagate. They can be removed after a certain size and it will grow on its own.
See this article:
I've seen more of these in my tank when it was just starting out and was deficient in nitrates and potassium. I wonder if a java fern will make more
of these if the conditions aren't good for it?
