It is not a disease or deficiency. This is mechanical damage. Probably the snails.

Removing them will likely solve the problem.

**edit***
Did a bit more reading on snail damage. It seems they can heal themselves over a few weeks, so you probably don't need to do any kind of repair at all. Just leave it to heal on its own....

I have my doubt on this being a deficiency. If it was you'd see similar issues in the other plants. Also Magnesium deficiency is pretty uncommon since most people have some in their water supply...

Very interesting.

Looks like an infection. Probably bacterial. Just trim off the affected leaves and wipe the blade between cuts so you don't spread it to healthy java fern. Not very common at...

Thanks. Around a year and a half I think. Maybe two. Very simple, nearly no upkeep required since it was all anubias and sagittaria.
