We just need better photos, we can't see if the damage is taking place on the new or old leaves and that makes all the difference. Also a description of the ferts that are being used is needed.

We need several close up good quality (focused) pictures of the new and old leaves of each plant. Which ones are melting? New or old? What ferts are you using and how long has this been a problem?

They don't always keep their tubers. Losing the tubers does not reflect the plant's health condition.

Yes looks like azolla. It is a species of fern that can nitrogen fix, so it will increase the nitrogen content of your water.

xNiNELiVES - I'm not sure if you saw my earlier post, but this problem you are having with HC is because the ammonia is too high, it is an ammonia toxicity.

There can only be one deficiency at a time. This is likely nitrogen deficiency since it is affecting the old growth. Add more nitrogen, see if you can't keep the nitrates at about 10-20 ppm.

Can you post closer photos of the leaves? I agree with Seattle, a deficiency is unlikely, while snails or insect damage is more likely. A close up picture will help tell.

They are easy to grow long term. They do very well if tied to wood or rocks.
