I have spent weeks thinking I had some sort of deficiency in my tank ruining my swords. I redid my tank and pruned all the bad leaves. This is 2 days later. The only fish I’ve seen touch them is my rainbow sharks, but my guess is my BN plecos are doing the snacking. How do I make them stop?
Plecos are native to the same area amazon swords are, so it’s a natural food source to them. Maybe put a cage around them? I don’t think you can get fish to stop eating plants completely.
I guess I just need more swords so it isn’t so noticeable lol
In nature, most leave have torn off some how.That fish try to make your tank plant look more real But if you don't like it then Take that fish out is the best option.
I seriously doubt it are the BN's, but at least feed them enough vegs to provide them with enough green.
My swords always had holes in them and I tried every fert to try and get them to grow then I took one out and it took off. Turns out my yoyo loaches were eating all the new growth.
