    If not then it really might be that you have low nutrient levels, (it is always good to narrow the possibilities before you start to jump to conclusions) you might start to spend all this money and then figure out it was something else causing your problem.

      If you bring some of your aquarium water to me, i can test it for you to see if there are any nutrient deficiencies or anything else. (You know where to find me)

        I would try bill's recipe for substrate. Sand is not really suitable for freshwater plants since they get a lit of their nutrients from roots (exceptions would be duckweed, et al)

          I have! One of my new platies had a fungal infection after quarantine, and I treated the tank with Maracyn, I think it was called. It was supposed to be a bacterial/ fungal remedy and it worked well but that was pretty recent in comparison to the last time I had plants. I think I'm going to get that substrate soon when I get out.

            The good news is that unlike saltwater substrate - you can generally find good stuff for freshwater planted for cheap.
