Never had any long term success with hornwort, Its a great plant but always found it to be touchy and when it decides to croak, it makes a heck of a mess *y2

What's the temp in the tank and how did you have it in there (i.e planted or floating)? Lighting is really low as well. Any chems added?

I'm betting it's the lack of lighting as well. The warmer the water is, the more light hornwort will require to thrive.

I've never had luck with hornwort either, I guess because my water is always quite warm and my light isn't very strong. I would just try a different plant. :-/
