Najas guadalupensis looking puny
Posted 07 August 2013 - 07:51 PM
The Najas is planted into the substrate in an unheated 50G cube, which is filtered with an Aquaclear 500. No other current. Substrate is CaribSea Naturals "Golden Sunset" (basically beige sand--I'm guessing silica-based?). The tank is undergoing a fishless cycle and I'm not using any fertilizers so far. Lighting is EcoRay 60 LEDs. Our water here in eastern NC is fairly soft and neutral, around 7-ish. I've grown other hardy plants (Vallisneria and Eleocharis montevidensis) successfully under the same fixture before.
Is this just the normal shock some plants go through upon being introduced into a new environment? I'm used to vals dying off on me to begin with, then coming back vigorously after about six weeks, but I've never kept Najas before. I've read so much about its invincible hardiness that I'm a little concerned. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice anyone cares to offer.
