Hi. I have 3 dwarf anubias. I got them 3 days ago. Yesterday I found that the third one had tiny holes like it's been burnt on 2 or 3 leaves. I looked at the others, the second was fine but the first on had a leaf with a hole so big that it was about 3 cm wide and tall. I think they may be burnt but I want to make sure. The second one is closest to the light but nothing happend to it. Confused The fish tank doesn't have much light, only 3-4 hours every night (15 watt) Is that a lot? The mollies don't seem to be interested in them. All they're interested in is food and mating.
Crying or Very sad Please help. I really love those plants!

First of all do you have snails.some snails could bite holes in the leafs.if so wright back and tell us what type they are.2# when the leafs get old they that way.3# you need more light in the aquarium, more like 10 hours a day (what size is the tank you might want to look up how much lighting you need exactly.)
Good luck there is nothing like a planted tank.

all of my plants developed holes and melted away eventually, I had a major fertilization problem!
Let the current take you where you may not always want to go.
