I have been trying to troubleshoot nutrient deficiencies in my 75 gallon aquarium for the past few months without success. Would you mind taking a look at the photos below? Maybe you can point me in the right direction.
I have been using the Seachem product line for fertilization. I'm realizing more and more that to get the ppm concentrations needed, I have to use a lot
of product which gets too expensive. So I'll be switching to dry fertilizers. I still have to figure out what target ppm doses I need for the major macro/micro nutrients though--since I've been having trouble.
I don't use CO2. I do have generous root tabs everywhere there are plants. Lighting is medium to high using a Finnex LED 24/7 Planted+. The light gradually turns on starting at 6:00am and then gradually turns off by 12:00am. Intensity is least earlier in the morning and later at night. Color is more on the red spectrum in the morning and evening, more blue at night, and more white during the day. PPM Dose Amount Per Week (Fertilator)
Nitrate = not dosed but is always 10-20ppm in aquarium
Phosphate = 1.62 ppm
Potassium = 25.21 ppm
Calcium = 6.67 ppm
Magnesium = 1.99 ppm
Iron = 0.51 ppm Plants

Thank you for your help!
