CO2 question

Ok probobly a dumb question but I am seeing holes in some plants and other sings of stress. I ran out of CO2 and wasnt able to get it refilled for 3 days. Is this the reason for the plant quality dropping. i am assuming so but figured i would consult the experts first.

if it's tiny little holes, it might be signs of potassium deficiency. Do you dose ferts? Three days of no CO2 shouldn't cause that much problems, especially if you already remedied it. If anything, I would think you'd see BBA starting.

Nope just started dosing today. Guess it may be the snails running out of food
