Quick question. Some of the leaves of my aquarium dwarf lily has holes in it. I don’t think it’s a nutrient deficiency. I use 1 pump aquarium co op easy green once a week.
Should I trim the leaves with holes in it or leave it?
If you think it is a nutrient deficiency what would it be? I also have root tabs in for crypt, vallisneria, and dwarf sag.

I would not trim them. The good parts of the leaf are still gathering light for the plant. IME this plant will do this with a potassium deficiency. IF they are blocking light from new growth consider trimming. Any lily pads yet or just the low leafs?

Also, give the plant a week or two to get used to its new home! Until those roots get established it may do weird things. You may not need to dose anything extra.

Azoo test kits for pH, GH, ammonia, seachem test for nitrites and nitrates. Don’t use conditioner as tap water is untreated.

I believe it could be potassium deficiency, maybe dose extra potassium, eg seachem, and see if it helps?
