I agree with Diana, I think you are adding way too much metricide. 20 mL is extremely high especially for a daily dose.

Ordinarily I think this is good advice if the damage is due to catfish or other herbivorous fish, but I don't think clown loaches are vegetarians at all. I think they just enjoy damaging the leaves...

That is mechanical damage not a deficiency. Most likely loach damage. They sometimes go nuts and punch holes in the leaves like that.

The bottom leaves will not heal when you add new fertilizer. You should leave them attached since the plant can use them as a source of nutrients until the deficiency is fixed. Once the plant is...

Go ahead and do a water change first and then dose the ferts. It will give you a nice clean slate. Yes CO2 should be turned on.

There are very few plants that you can't grow. Only the soft water plants like erios, and ammanias will probably not do so well. Most plants do not care much about carbonates.
