The holes in a few plant leaves would suggest sometghing is nibbling them; usually nutrient-deficiency holes have yellow or brown around them.

What fish--loaches will do this? Snails [Malaysian and pond/bladder do not do this, others might]?

Your tank looks really good! You have given me a bunch of ideas to do in my tank as well. I really don't have any suggestions to moving anything around. Great job! Oh I love those Angles. Hope to get me a few once I get my plants going in the tank.

Do you think even Assassins? I have a couple in there but I don't generally see them on the plants. For fish, there are Angels, Gourami, Rainbow shark and Cories and a Sailfin Pleco but he is usually on the wood or the glass. Obviously I don't know what they do while I am sleeping. I don't see holes on all the plants but there are a few of the shorter less mature plants. Oh and I do have one mystery snail in there. I just looked at him and he looks sort of guilty resting in the floating hornwort.


kmiceray Thank you for the complement. I can't wait to see your Angels once you get them. Each one is so beautiful. I just love them!

Mystery snail is so named because it is not easy to correctly identifying the species, so it may be one of several. And some do eat healthy plants, others only dying plant matter. I'm not saying yours is the culprit, mind. One of the "snail-wise" members might have more or be able to ID your snail.

The plant damage doesn't look like much, i would observe things before removing anyone. Could just be some older poorer leaves. See if holes develop on other leaves.

Oh yeah. That snail has been with me since day one so... not going anywhere. If it is a plant eater I won't be replacing. I do have one of the same kind of snail in the other tank and there are no holes there so... hopefully it will just be one week plant and it will just grow out some healthier leaves. They have been through a lot with being moved around.
