I added my Narrow Leaf Java Fern the 21st of February to a new tank and it's now dying.

Does anybody have any idea why it is? The worst one I tried to move closer to the light, didn't help. So now I moved it to a different tank but all the while the other java ferns aren't doing all that good.

imo looks like its melting back had this happen to a few ferns Ive had. It was usually when I moved them tank etc ive heard it can be caused by a lack of nutrients or just the plant adapting to new water chemisrty my two cents would to be dose some ferts and check for new growth around rhizome

was a matter of two weeks I pulled the "mushy leaves" off as I read somewhere it just uses energy the plant would otherwise direct to new growth think out of 4 its happened too I lost 1 just wouldn't sprout new growth hope this helps

Put it in the shade and no direct light.
