HI, I don't have that much experience yet. But your swords are looking pretty good to me. Only thing I do with mine is that I cut off the damaged leaves(anything with holes, or getting brown and dying off) right at the bottom, as close to the roots as possible to leave as little to rot as possible. That's all I could say.

Pretty awesome looking tank BTW. How big is it?

I usually wait until the leaves turn completely brown before pulling them off so that all of the nutrients has already left it. Just remove bad leaves and leave the healthy ones.
