I have read so much about what could cause holes in aquatic plants that I really have no idea what it could be. I EI dose ferts but I have dialed back the KH2PO4 and KNO3 because, as you can see, my water test show plenty of each in the water. Also my plants don't have that rich green color they used to. They are yellowing some. Should I be dosing Fe?

NH3 = 0
NO2 = 0
NO3 = 40ppm
PH = 7.4
K = 9
GH = 12
TDS = 345
CO2 = Drop Checker is yellow by mid day

Lighting = T5 6700K 28W x 4 = 112w
10000K 28w x 2 = 56 w
Total Light = 168W (Sits on top of tank)

Cut out all the leaves with hole hoping the larva was still on the plant. Then any new holes cut those leaves out. Since doing this on the first day the next couple days have not seen any new eaten holes.
