Default Broms Browning at the Edges

In a new tank, I have 2 broms that are doing quite well, and 2 others that are getting brown at the edges. Does this look like a result of too much light? Are the 2 broms with brown edges simply more sensitive?

Greetings,

This does not look like sun/light burn. You would expect more widespread damage than the particular edges that are effected here. There could be a mineral deficiency going on or it could just be the result of leaf-edge damage from shipment or handling during placement.

Unless the browning continues to spread, I wouldn't worry about it just yet.

Light: As you suggested, it doesn't look like the same damage pattern I've seen in the past from excessive light. I suspect you are right.

Shipping: They weren't recently shipped.

Handling: Possible. I washed them and submerged them in water for >5hrs prior to planting a few weeks ago. I don't have experience with the type of damage that could result.

Mineral: Possible. I don't have experience with that.

It's been spreading for about 2 weeks now. If the new growth displays similar damage, then it probably isn't handling.
