hi guys
The ends of leaves on Blyxa have gone stringy and gone to mush, could this be too much light?
its a pure white bulb in a wall mounted lamp about a foot above the tank.
bulb: 40Watt
Co2: Diy
Ferts: 2ml TPN+ daily
Tank: Clearseal 18"x12"x12"


Cheers

it could be just the posting and moving.
or it'll be co2 levels, i ran pressurized co2 pretty high levels.

the light in my tank was
a 30 something watt t8 on for 10 hours,
2x54w t5 for 8 hours
an "midday burst" of another 2x 54w t5
so it was pretty high!!

hopefully they will just melt a bit and bounce back again.
