My take these days is clean, clean, clean. Especially the filters. I added some kno3 and phosphate two weeks ago and the next day the plant leaves were coated in brown slime. No fish. No co2. I don't know how you are running your tank so perhaps you have some other problem. For me keeping things clean, not adding too much n,p,k and a decent amount of flow works pretty well.
