Subject: Java fern black spots?
I was recently asked the following question:
> Question: One of our members has Java fern in a community tank. It
> started to develop black spots on it which have started to spread - not
> only to the rest of the Java but to other plants as well. Her pH is quite

I seem to have heard about this type of thing before but couldn't remember if
a cause had been decided on. I had a quick search around on the net, and
didn't come up with anything.
