Are they round, smallish pinholes (possibly a sign of a K deficiency)? Or are they jagged holes (more signs of fish/snail damage)?

My first thoughts,
Brian.

I have signs of the same in my tank which is a newly setup tank. It mainly seems to be on the Blue Stricta (Hygrophilia Corymbosa) leaves and mainly older leaves.
Round small holes and some dropping of leaves
I wonder that is is as I don't believe I have any snails in the tank

Pin holes on leaves that gradually increase in size is usually a potassium deficiency.

I have the same problem in my plants as well.

My larger anubias actually has tears in the middle of the leaf (not fish damage) and also black dots on it. Also the its top leaves looks withered and are curling inward whereas the bottom leaves are flatter.

What is the solution to this?

I currently have a 12000K 18 watt and I know that's not ideal but I cannot find a light that's within my budget but I am looking at AH supply's kit for future use.

larger anubias with holes/tears, also shows "curling" compare to bottom leaf


better view of "curling"


smaller anubias with holes(not seen) and dark green dots around the plant
