Removal of melting Crypt leaves

I have set-up a brand new aquarium with primarily C griffithii and C
pontederiifolia. Most of the C griffithii leaves and many of the C
pontederiifolia are melting. Should these leaves be removed to prevent
excess nutrients leaching to the water or do the plants use them to
recycle some nutrients for growth?
