It turns out my adolescent angels love to eat Amazon Swords, lol. Before I put the angels in my 30 gallon tank, I had quite a few of nice Amazon Swords. After a while of the angels being in the 30 gallon tank, I noticed my Amazon Swords' leaves getting smaller and smaller around the edges. Now, the leaves are thin skeletons of Amazon Swords, rather than Amazon Swords themselves, lol. The culprits are of course the angels. Never knew angels like to eat Amazon Swords! Poor plants!

My 2 small Angels dont even touch that plant. They dont really go over to that side of the tank, they normally stay on the side where the hole for feeding is, my Angels really like their food, they are funny cause they really like to eat - theyre pigs.

Well, I had to cut off all leaves of my Amazon Swords - that's how bad the plants looked. But I left the main roots underneath the gravel and new leaves are growing quite fast. They'll be entirely new plants soon. Hopefully, this time the angels will leave them alone
