holes in leaves

Folks,
My plants are getting irregular holes in all the leaves. I do have a bunch of snails but they have been here awhile. Deficiency? I stopped dosing CSM+B due to copper and I have shrimp. Could that be the problem?
Thanks

Yes. Not getting enough Micro's is a cause for damaged tissues like holes.

Many people have shrimp and dose CSM including myself.

I dose CSM+B with snails and have never had a problem. I even dose it in my snail dedicated tank and they have never shown adverse effects. When I did keep some shrimp they always lived long enough for the fish to eat them and never had any problems. Oh and I dose rather high also, up to .3ppm iron where the nrom is only about .1 ppm.
