I'm new to Aquarium. I have a nice tank with Sunset Hygro and some other plants like Rotala and Alternanthera Reineckii.
However, after 10 days, the new & young leaves of my Sunset Hygro become misshapened and stunted like this. People suggest that it is a lack of Ca or Iron. However it does not occur to the other plants in the tank!

And, if it is really a problem with Ca or Iron, then which product from Seachem or JBL should I use to solve it?

The Hygro grows 2-3x faster than your other plants. They will try to absorb more nutrients. What are your water parameters and fertilizer routine?
It is a basic setup with:
  • Green Gex substrate + Gravel on top.
  • PH is around 6 - 7.5
  • Light and CO2 for 8 hours per day
Nutrients come from the substrate only. Or should I provide other types of fertilizer liquid?
