What is causing my leaves to die?

Some of my leaves on my Ludwig plants are doing this. Every other plant is fine generally. Seems to be mainly on the lower older leaves but some of the small new leaves get like this also. They either up up looking ripped or with holes in.

This is plant melting, plants will do that when transitioning to new parameters or to save resources by cutting off leaves that are compromised when the situation isn't ideal. Need more information on your tank parameters before we can figure it out though.

Do you inject CO2? What's your lights like? Do you add in fertilizer? How old is the plant/tank? Did you make any big changes recently?

I’m injecting co2 and el dosing daily. Is it happening because I have trimmed the plants and then re planted them?
