    My plants were growing nicely and were healthy. Suddenly, they seem to be melting away into paste. Dun understand why. These plants are near my CO2 diffuser. Those away from the diffuser are very fine. Dun understand why.

    Is there any water circulation in the area of melting? What is your CO2 bubble rate? Any KH/PH readings? Size of tank?
    What fertilisation are you using?

    My tank is 3.5 ft. The internal filter is at the other end of the tank. The water circulation might not be strong where the CO2 is located. I dun hav any reading.
    Thank you.

    My bubble rate is around 2-3 per second

    What plants are melting? Fast and easy growing ones too?
    Do you have anything special in your filter like Zeolite/ Carbon etc?

    I could be lack of nutrients. Plants can store nutrients, and will grow nicely but suddenly die when the stores runout.

    Consider these... one, lack of circulation is limiting the flow of nuitrients to them, two, perhaps you need to fertilise the substrate. Depending on whether is rosette plants, or stem plants it could be substrate or both.

    I have a 1 meter tank and I am using 2 Ehiem 2006 internal filters.

    Thanks, actually i have bought some ferts, but has not done so, due to lack of time. Will take note.

    I have a additional power head . Can I just add them to the tank to help circulate better.
