    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

    No, its lack of co2.

    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.
