 Hi  friend...
 
   I  am  just  learning  now  only  about  plants..  I  think  its  maybe  due  to  iron  dificiency..  The  plants  lose  its  color  when  iron  is  low  and  it  becomes  black  when  high..  So  lets  we  will  wait  and  see  what  the  experts  suggest..
 
 Thank  you

 KarthickJk  :  Even  I  thought  the  same.  But  aquasol  micro  contains  Iron.  Think  using  a  laterite  based  substrate  will  solve  the  issue.  Problem  is  high  cost.   Smile

 Then  check  the  temperature  and  the  water  quality  in  tank..  I  think  this  will  help  you
 
   Can  you  share  about  your  water  details  and  the  current  temperature?   Smile   Smile

 Not  using  heater.  My  thermometer  broke.  How  to  test  water?  Should  I  get  a  testing  kit?

 Hi,  Even  I  have  Cabomba  plants  and  i  have  noticed  that  the  ones  which  are  away  from  my  CFL  light  are  fine.  However,  the  ones  which  are  closer  to  it  are  turning  white.  May  be  its  the  light  that  is  too  high.

 Rajkiran  :  You  have  a  point.  New  shoots  are  red  without  white  color.  But  cabomba  is  supposed  to  be  a  high  light  requirement  plant.   Unsure

 i  dont  think  its  due  to  high  light.  i  have  cabomba  furcata  in  my  90  gallon  tank  with  4x55watt  t5ho  and  ive  never  seen  this  of  behaviour.  infact  the  closer  they  reach  the  surface,  they  get  a  kind  of  blood  red  colour.  knowing  your  water  parameters  would  help!

 @DRDHEEP
 
 In  my  recent  Kerala  Holiday  Trip,  I  collected  a  lot  of  Red  Cabomba  from  the  Vembanad  lake
 
 Ive  put  one  shoot  in  my  tank  to  experiment  with  it.  (Regular  weekly  macro/micro  dosings,  liquid  CO2)
 
 The  others  are  in  a  bucket  kept  on  the  terrace  which  gets  4  hours  morning  sun
 
 A  Lot  of  the  leaves  in  the  bucket  are  melting  so  Im  assuming  it  will  melt  a  bit  before  picking  up.  The  white  leaves  is  probably  the  melting  that  takes  place.
 
 Ive  always  had  a  problem  with  this  plant  especially  with  the  bottom  rotting  and  not  able  to  root.  This  could  be  maybe  because  I  think  it  needs  a  soft  sandy  substrate.

 Even  for  me  I  never  had  success  in  Cabomba.  It  rots  off  from  the  bottom  once  they  grow  tall.
 I  think  it  was  because  of  my  low  light.

 aquascapist  :  What  sort  of  test  kit  should  I  test  with  sir?  What  parameters  need  to  be  tested?
 superbsite,  jabba  :  Upgraded  my  lights  to  T5H0.  Let  me  see  if  it  makes  a  difference.
 New  shoots  are  bright  red.  After  a  week,  they  start  turning  white  and  melting.
