 Hi  All,
 
 my  2.5ft  tank  setup  -  
 
 Blyxa  Japonica  and  Pogostemon  helferi  in  my  setup  has  been  giving  new  shoots  regularly  however  they  eventually  turn  yellow,  kind  of  breaks  from  tip  and  then  eventually  die/melt...this  continued  for  some  time  and  now  the  parent  plants  are  also  dying.
 
 I  thought  it  could  most  probably  be  a  potassium  deficiency  as  staurogyne  tropica's  old  leaves  were  also  turning  yellow,  with  holes  and  were  dying.  i  started  dosing  additional  potassium  in  the  form  of  k2so4  and  staurogyne  troipca  is  doing  good  now,  however  issue  with  blyxa  continues...all  pogostemon  have  melted  away  already.  I  have  also  tried  dosing  extra  iron  via  CSM+  /  seachem  iron  but  all  it  contributed  to  was  hair  and  thread  algae.  i  dose  aquatic  remedy's  macro  and  micro.
 
 in  my  4ft  tank  blyxa  is  doing  well,  dosing  regime  was  same  and  was  using  same  aquatic  remedy  macro  and  micro.  i  tried  moving  these  blyxa's  to  the  2.5  ft  setup  however  after  few  days  they  also  have  the  same  issue.  by  the  way  when  i  remove  few  of  the  blyxa  plants  which  almost  lost  all  leaves  have  deep  healthy  roots  going  upto  to  5-6  inches   Surprised   
 
 HC  cuba  is  perfectly  healthy  and  growing  well  from  the  beginning.
 
 Could  it  be  overall  stability  and  maturity  of  the  tank?  ammonia  level  is  still  high  in  my  2.5ft  setup  (its  almost  6  months  old  setup)?  few  of  my  fish  specially  glow  light  tetra  when  transferred  from  4ft  to  this  2.5ft  tank  did  show  stress  signs...pale  color  etc  in  spite  of  eating  well  and  been  in  the  tank  for  few  weeks....the  day  i  shifted  them  to  my  4ft  tank  within  an  hour  i  saw  the  deep  colors  back  on  them...cardinal  tetra  with  RCS  had  no  issues  with  them  in  the  2.5ft  tank.
 
 details  of  my  setup  -  http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=29974
 
 thanks,
 Binesh

 a  pic  to  give  an  idea,  the  new  leaves  did  grow  to  double  the  size  its  currently  and  then  started  to  turn  yellow  and  then  started  to  wither  off  from  top  to  bottom.

 Hi  Haneef,
 
 2ft  tank  details  are  there  in  the  link  that  i  provided....temperature  of  that  tank  is  around  25  degree.  and  has  50%  amazonia  as  top  layer  and  50%  inert  gravel  as  base.
 lighting  period  is  for  about  9  hrs....72watts  pll...its  approx  25-30  gallon  tank.
 
 4ft  tank  has  soilrite  and  coco  peat  as  base  layer,  about  30%  used  ada  amazonia   as  middle  layer  and  inert  gravel  as  top  layer.  temperature  of  that  tank  now  would  be  almost  29  degree  as  it  has  no  fans  installed.  lighting  period  is  9hrs....108watt  T5HO...its  approx  55  gallon  tank.
 
 Cheers,
 Binesh

 Hi  Binesh,
 
 Blyxa  takes  time  to  get  adjusted  when  you  are  moving  to  a  different  tank.  Now  unstability  or  maturity  of  tank  has  added  more  problem  to  Blyxa  due  to  which  it  is  not  able  to  get  adjusted  to  new  environment.  I  would  suggest  you  to  first  stabilize  the  tank  and  then  move  Blyxa.  hope  that  should  solve  Blyxa  problem  :)
 
 Warm  Regards,
 -  TK

 Haneef,
 
 i  doubt  its  blyxa  adjusting  to  the  new  tank,  i  had  few  blyxa's  from  you,  few  from  an  lfs,  few  from  my  4ft  tank....all  had  new  shoots  after  a  few  days  of  settling,  all  the  new  shoots  turned  yellow  and  eventually  melted  slowly,  all  the  plants  have  healthy  and  deep  roots.
 
 Cheers,
 Binesh

 Blyxa  japonica  takes  a  long  time  settling  in  a  tank.  Have  patience.  sometimes  is  simply  does  not  adjust  at  all.

 Some  micronutrients  such  as  iron  take  several  weeks  to  get  translocated  into  the  plant.  Heavy  fertilization  can  also  cause  similar  symptoms.  Is  your  aquarium  properly  cycled?  How  long  its  been  since  you  established  your  pogostemon  helferi  tank?

 pogostemon  was  in  the  same  tank  however  gave  up  and  melted  away  after  giving  4-5  new  shoots  regularly  in  a  span  of  4-6  weeks.
 
 the  tank  should  be  cycled,  as  mentioned  in  the  first  post  its  a  6  month  old  tank  and  HC  cuba,  RCS  and  cardinal  tetra's  are  doing  fine....
 
 Cheers,
