You could clip them our not. Do you have fish eating the leaves? Seems like a likely culprit.


Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

I personally don't worry too much about holes in plants. I just trim the ones that are clearly brown and done. If you just added the swords, they could be acclimatizing to your tank. Plants do need some time to adjust to your tank environment.
