Clowns eating plants??

Hello everyone,

I have just found this forum and need to ask a question. Does anybody esle have a problem with their clowns eating the leaves of thier plants? Something also seems to be punching small holes in the middle of the leaves. I think that they are the ones doing it. If anyone has had this problem before, is their anything to keep them from this? I have started feeding a little more algea tablets hoping they will get enough green food in it, but I am not sure if it is working.

Just to let you know about my tank, pH 6.8, frequent water changes, 75gal, plants, driftwood, gravel. Occupants are 6 clowns (have had them for 2 years), 6 discus, 18 cardinals. Thanks for any help you can offer.
