Which Flourish product(s) are you using?
Are you using any substrate fertilizers?
Any source of carbon?

Take off the damaged sword plant leaves. Those were grown in air and don't last long underwater. You are lucky not to see real crypt meltdowns. The leaves turn to goo which would be purple goo for yours. Bet much of this is plants transitioning to underwater life. Many plants we grow are actually plants that spend much of the year growing in air, not water and that is how the nursery grows them.

I believe the plant in picture #11, image 0190, may be planted to deep?
