I don't see any evidence of leaf miners. It looks like they need to go in the ground (they love hot weather) and some fertilizer and water. I would cut off any old, tired, torn leaves and let the plants flush out some new growth.

I agree there is no evidence of leaf minors. Peppers can do well in pots. I suspect your growing medium is the problem. As hcmcdole suggested they should go in ground. Otherwise change the medium. Crisped edges are a sign of over fertilizing. Peppers are not heavy feeders. Their tomato and eggplant relatives require more feeding.

I grow out several hundred peppers each year and keep about forty plants. All start under lights... six to ten varieties. I don't fertilize when transplanting, then lightly two weeks after transplanting and then when flowering begins. That's it. I've never needed insect control on peppers.
