Let me try to complete my post and question again.

A few more pictures

So the plants have grown well enough the tank looks OK but I have Green spot algae which is a pain to clean and many of the older leaves are not very green especially on the Anubias. I know that my water has no iron in it and measuring parameters showed Iron 0, PO4 .1 ppm, NO3 10 ppm, KH 2-3, and pH of 7.4

So I decided to add iron and other macros and mixed my own based on one of the online calculators. Adding 3x per week. After 10 days my nitrates are still about 10, Phosphate 2.5 or so, Iron present but I don't think the Seachem test is accurately ,measuring it but I add enough of the 10% iron chelate for .2ppm 3X week.

I didn't expect much of a change yet but the Crypts are not happy and most melted.

Any thoughts or suggestions
