Thanks. Yeah, the aromatica is pale, and the r. colorata is not growing new growth with red stems, so I've started to dose traces (Seachem Flourish - I need to finish this bottle first but I also have a bag of Plantex CSM+B), as well as dosing 3 times weekly phosphate 0.33ppm and K 3.33 ppm.
The carpet is nice, but frustrating - I've mowed it 3 times already. It was sold to me as e. Belem, but it's obviously just regular e. acicularis based on the height. I'm going to have to continue to mow it for the life of the tank... /sigh
