Couple of things:

Sometimes, plants just do that when they move to a new environment. You might want to wait it out a bit.

Plants need macros (nitrogen, phosphorous and potassum or NPK) and micros (trace elements including iron, boron, manganese, etc). You need to supply them from somewhere with a combination of fish waste, overfeeding, and fertilizer dosing.

Light is the overall determiner of how fast these micros and macros are used. Low light = low nutrient demands = slow growth. Initial testing is important as it determines at what rate your tank is going through nutrients. Once you get a feel for growth, testing is not as important.

You might want to try slowly dosing some kind of liquid fertilizer. Pfertz or Seachem or whatever.

I am not that great w/ diagnosing but it looks to me as if all the problems are on old growth leaves. I'd say NPK deficiency. Maybe potassium.

Someone else can probably chime in with a more acurate analysis.
