Setup specifications, like light, CO2 or not, etc? Do you add fertilizer and if so, what and at what amounts? Do you test the water and if so, what are the results?

Pearling only means your plants produce oxygen faster than it can dissolve in water or the water is already saturated with oxygen. It tells you nothing about health. So when a plant comes all kind of nutrients short, it still pearls, but basically it's only dying faster than when it wasn't pearling. So all the pearling tells me is that you use a lot of light, all the gda tells you it's more light than the plants can handle with the amount of nutrients they have.
My advice would be to either reduce the amount of light or find out what your plants are missing. 9 out of 10 times I fixed GDA by adding magnesium, but it might be something else in your tank, or you can try magnesium as well.

I think I missed the date of your post. Either way, good to hear it's fixed, what did you changed?
