This is my first real planted tank, and the plants don't look the best. I'm not sure if they are just getting used to the environment or what but I have had them for 1 week in the tank. The substrate is a layer of potting mix topped with gravel mixed in with root tabs. I also use easy green by aquarium coop about once every 5 days. What is wrong with what I am doing, or is this just a natural part of it?

Now, i’m not an expert in plants i must say, so maybe another member can chime in. But in my own experience, if they are new plants, it could be that the plants are melting their “emersed” leaves. The plants are grown above the water, so they grow leaves that can survive above water. If you add them to an “submersed” environment, they will need “submersed” leaves. They will grow back after a while.
