Crypts not doing well!
I've been watching my Cryptocoryne willisii and my various other
crypts grow slowly and gradually look more and more unhealthy. The leaves
are yellowing and a couple have holes in them. My other plants, on the
other hand(huge mass of java moss and fern on a large piece of driftwood,
Ceratopteris thalictroides, 3 Echinodorus bleheri(paniculatus), Hydrocotyle
leucocephala and 2 anubias barteri var nana), are doing wonderfully. I keep
the tank well fertilized, but I believe that the iron and phosphorus
content of the water is a bit high(not sure exactly). The pH is 6.5 and
there is DIY CO2 injection and the water is quite soft(<3DH).
Does anyone know why these crypts are not doing well. I always had the
impression that they were fairly easy to grow and don't require much light
- though I have 3W/gal of Chroma 50's. If there is any more info you need
to answer this question, please let me know. Any help would be appreciated,
by myself and the plants!
