    Are your plants in a small container in full sun? Maybe you are 'cooking' them. Do you have a pump to recirculate the water and keep it airated? Do you have any submersed plants called oxygenators?

    There is a WONDERFUL web site called The Garden Web. You might try reading and posting on their 'Ponds and Aquatic Plants' forum. Just scroll down when you get there. When you post, do mention what plants you are referring to, the location and size of the container (sun or shade or in between), whether or not you have oxygenators and if so which ones, how many plants you have in the container, etc.

    Good luck,
    Newt
