Hygrophila being munched on?


Hi everyone,

I just noticed that on some leafes they looked like they are being munched on. Towards the bottom one leaf is completely clear, on others they have small holes and around the holes they are clear. Is this a nutrient deficiency? They are GROWING like a monster and are very green. I dose pottasium 1/4 tsp, phosphate 1/8 tsp, nitrate 1/2 tsp on water change days which is 3xweekly with Saturday being a rest day. 15ml of CSM+B plus extra iron on the opposite days as others. I have 2.4 WPG. Any ideas? Thanks!
Pete

I noticed that whenever I buy Hygrophila, they're always emersed branches. the leaves usually get like what you described and then fall off, then the stems do nothing. Like now, they're not really growing, but then, I just started dosing EI method pretty recently. Perhaps the leaves at the bottom of your plants were there when you bought them and they're the emersed type, or maybe, this happens to old Hygro leaves.
