    Hi all, i have some MM, and over the past few days i have noticed about half way up the stem quite a few of them have just snaped off/ withered away. The stem looks white as though there is no chlorophyll left.

    60l tank
    36w PC T5
    pressurized CO2
    5ml TPN+ daily.

    thanks.

    Were they damaged when planting or transporting?

    Hey Aaron,
    My initial reaction is to add more CO2/flow...

    Cheers,

    no, they have been in there for over a month now and it has only just come on?

    Clive, flow is fine, 10x turnover and every plants waves in the water. CO2 is run into yellow.
