This plant is a true weed for me given enough macro/micros(with/without CO2, high/low light). My guess is, your nutrient dosing is lacking. Under high light, Flourish alone will not be sufficient, you need more NO3, PO4, K, possibly iron.

you need to give adequate micros (inc. iron) and phosphates.

I am sensing some misunderstanding here...

Plants need BOTH macros and micros. If you are dosing Flourish now, this will take care of micros. Macros are even more important, but waiting until Flourish is out and then going to macro dosing isn't the way to go. Both need to be added concurrently.
