Default Name that deficiency - Anubias Version

Hello, had fish before but new to planted tanks. Going for a low tech setup and Anubias is looking a little worse for wear. Some background: nitrate about 20ppm, Phosphorus 0.75 ppm, KH 120 ppm, PH 7.5. I started dosing Tropica Premium nutrition liquid fert a couple days ago and haven't noticed much change. Any help is appreciated....

Give it time for the fert to take effect.
You might have too much light from the algae on the leaves. Cut back the hours or intensity.

Thanks for the tips, much appreciated.
Will dial back the intensity, I currently have them on a timer set to 9 hours, is that too long?

Also how long does it usually take to notice a turn around from the fert, a couple weeks? Longer, shorter? Should I be trimming off the leaves that look affected or will they come back?

Thanks again for the help... kind of jumped into this plant thing head first and I love it, but the learning curve has been steep lol

The damaged leaves won't heal. It's best you trim them off for plant's general health & growth.

Set the timer to 8 hours to start. You can adjust when you have a better feel.
