I was given some Anubais, by a friend, they are covered in BBA, have holes in the leaves, the structure is overall very poor and look almost dead, I have cut the worse leaves off and popped the rest into my srimp tank, they have done a great job of cleaning the leaves up, still they are full of holes, whats the best course of action? Cut off all the leaves and let new growth come or...........

Cheers,
JOHNNY

Hey Johnny
I used to have the same problem before. IME What I did was cut off all badly damage leaves and left only 2 to 3 best looking leaves on.
This is to ensure 2 things:
-only left minimum leaf for the plant to focus more on producing new leaf instead of repairing those damages.
-the remaining leaves is also needed for the plant to do photosynthesis. (gain energy and so on..)

Then I just cut off all the damage once new shot emerge. SNAP!! :twisted:

Regards
