Sounds like ammonia or chlorine burn. Check your water parameters. Do more frequent water changes.
I will change the water tonight. Thank you

Guys. What is the common local name for this plant ah?
I notice the few LFS in my area will always sell them. They are kept in a roughly 2feet tank, usually with another type of plant with needle like leaves. The tank has nothing but a pump. No substrate, fishes. But I notice the plants are always green plump and no browning de. Is there a trick to the healthy plants the LFS keep them???

Fish lying motionlessly on bottom of tank and heavy breathing means no chance to save it anymore?

I was not in a rush to use this plant, so i left it inside a longish plastic container filled with water and covered up. I threw in 2 snails from my guppy container.
Today out of curiosity why the plant doesnt seem to be growing at all, so i stared closer. To my astonishment, i saw a leaf moving, then a caterpillar looking 毛毛蟲 was crawling out from that leaf. That leaf isnt flat, it was curled up like a tube. Out of worry, i looked up and down and realised there are a few more such tube looking leaves with these 毛毛蟲 moving.
I threw the whole plant away and wash up the container.

Just curious. Is this normal??? I have used this plant several times before, but i never seen these "insect" before. Regret not taking a pic before throwing away, because i panicked and just threw...

many aquatic plants are grow on dry land and its actual form is quite different when it inside a fish tank.

unless you are buying from Tropica which is not cheap but free from pest, most farms grow aquatic plants like this.
that is why is full of snails and pest.
