• Welcome to ScapeCrunch!

    We are a friendly, online community of people interested in planted aquariums. We support and help each other learn and grow. It is our sincere hope that you will join us and find our tight-knit community valuable and fun!

    ScapeCrunch is different than Facebook Groups. Here's how:

    • It is a place where you can make long-term friends in the planted aquarium hobby and have long, multi-day talks on specific subjects.
    • Unlike social media, online communities like ScapeCrunch are much better at curating collective knowledge and in fostering deeper relationships.
    • They lend themselves better at long-form discussions.
    • You can maintain a thread on your personal aquarium with pictures and details. Other members can comment, help and ask questions. You can do the same with their Member Tank threads.

    Where Facebook is more like a large city-wide party, ScapeCrunch is more like your neighborhood bar "where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came." It's always fun to go to large parties but it's at the local bar that you feel people really know you. The great part is that you can and should go to both!

    Please consider joining to become a full fledged member of our growing community of planted aquarium obsessed enthusiasts. Let's grow together!

Is there a specific cause for the curling in these leaves?

GH 5.2 (24ppm Ca, 8ppm Mg)
28ppm NO3
8ppm PO4
31ppm K

Burr's Micro mix .45Fe as proxy.

Pool Filter Sand substrate.

Thanks for any insight.

Rubin leaves arent gonna be completely flat but those are a little unhappy right now. Are they newly acquired? If they're tops you replanted try going with longer ones next time. Its a tough easy plant and grows fine in sand. Will probably grow out of it


Glandulosa (in back) has flat leaves
