Unhappy Need help with a Eriocaulon parkeri

About a month ago I planted a very small Eriocaulon Parkeri. For the first two weeks it looked that is was growing good. But then it started looking bad. Some of the leafs are disintegrating and I don't know what to do.

I'm using Seachem Flourish two times a week and Flourish Excel three times a week using a syringe to ensure that I'm giving the right amount.

I have a 600 L. aquarium, whith six angel fish, some coridoras, kuhli loaches, two ancistrus and a bulldog pleco. The eriocaulon parkeri is not the only plant in the tank, I have tree samll red mangroves.

The light I'm using is a Dymax Rex 4 with T5 bulbs 28w each.

Here is a video I made you can see some leafs that are cut, but are because of the "disintegration".

I hope someone can help me to rescue this plant.

looks to be buried too deep in substrate, and I've read that outer leaves die back on replanting. do you have co2?

Yes, it looks too deep. Old leaf die off is normal in transplanting. I have even had whole plants die on transplanting, but the off-shoots do great in their new environment.

Welcome to APC, lotsofwater!
