So I have a pretty heavily planted tank and some inhabitant has been eating some of my anubias leaves for months and not sure which it is . 
The inhabitants in my tank 

bosmani Rainbows, Congo Tetras, Odessa Barbs, cardinals, Ember Tetras, hillstream loaches, Cory’s, green fire tetras, neon green rasboras, rummynose rasboras, Siamese algae eater, peacock gundgeons, rabbit snails, ramshorn snails, Nettie snails, and Malaysian trumpet snails. 
who do you think is eating them? I have seen the rabbit snails eat on a sword I had but have never seen them on the anubias before.

I would guess snails. I know snails on land love plants so....?

I don't think any of those fish would eat Anubius.

Are you sure something is munching on them? My anubias gets holes and starts to sad when I don't add potassium. 

Yeah they are not holes. Legit looks like bites. I will add a pic when my lights go on.

The only way most snails will munch plants is if the plant leaf is already dying. It may not be visibly dying to our eye but snails usually know before I do if my plant is having issues. Unless they are not getting enough food then my plants are fair game.
