Brown spots on Amazon sword?

I have noticed very small spots on this new sword I got. 50gallon tank upgrading lights soon to what I can afford.

Could you post a pic? Also, what do you use for root tabs?

Those are all emersed grown leaves. They will die off and a different shaped leaf will regrow in it's place. Just be sure to give them some good root tabs and everything will be fine.

Should I just cut them or let it go?

I ignore them until the leaves start to look really bad. Then I cut them.

When you trim sword plants do it as close to the base as is reasonable.
