That does appear more like something eating the leaf. I've never had mystery (or any large) snails.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I wish I knew who was munching? I have seen the Angels picking at it but I don't know if they started it or are just doing it because it is rough edges? Do fish eat plants? The Balasae must be especially tasty as it is hit the worst. Oto's have never bothered my plants in the past so I didn't think it was them?

Thanks for the complement, yyankeeyankeefan. It is a work in progress for sure. I am truly excited about the babies though... I am becoming a plant hoarder and sit around picturing how plants will look in a new tank. :)

I will likely re-do my 25 gallon next. Especially with all the nice new swords I will have to work with.

It only has like 5 long leaves, I hate to cut 3 of them out.
I have the same problem, the holes I see in my plants look the same as yours. I don't have any snails in my tank (thanks to the loaches), but I'm guessing the loaches eat the leaves, because I know they love lettuce when I put it in the tank. I don't know who else would be doing that. Glad to know it's not just my tank

Put a webcam that records everything to your computer for a day and you can go back and watch it to find the unknown bandit!

Ha Ha I am an old lady, I am not that high tech.

I THINK the bandit is the Angels then as I have seen them sort of pecking at it. Maybe they like lettuce as well? I might just not be able to have that particular plant as it seems they really enjoy that one. I do have a few others with small holes but that one is the worst. Darn it, I really like that plant.
