What's wrong with my Hygrophila corymbosa?
Sonething is happening with my Hygrophila corymbosa, It looks like it's been attacked be caterpillers? But that's not possabile. I has little holes all over the leaves, It could'nt be the snails could it? Here's a few Pics. what do you's think?
Some of the pin holes are encircled with yellow. This is a sign of potassium deficiency. Check out this site for a colored diagram of plant deficiencies.

I agree. But the question is, what if any fertilizers are you using now? There has to be a balance of the 17 nutrients, so knowing what is being added now will help us suggest remedies.
I add Seachem's Comprehensive Plant Supplement, about once a week. I've also noticed the ones in my 10 gallon are doing good, the pics are from my 25 gallon. I wonder If it's not enough light, because now that I look closer my Water Sprite is growing more and starting to shade the Hygrophila?
What light is over the 25g? And while we're on it, what is the GH of your tap water?
I have 2 15 watt Mini Compact Fluoresent Bulbs, right now. But I'am looking at upgrading to a T5 set-up, But there pretty costly. So I have to wait for a bit, and I don't know my GH.
The GH you can find out from the water supply people, might have a website. This is important as it is the prime source of calcium and magnesium and possibly important for potassium.
