First Planted Discus Tank

This is my first planted tank, I have had several fresh and saltwater FOLWR aquarium over the years. My freshwater tank have been mainly for Discus. This time I decided to try Dicscus with live plants in a low tech setup.

The plants were doing great for about 2 months and have recently took a turn. Yellow leave, holes in leaves and black leaves also.

Any suggestions?
