Another newbie seeking advice

Advice needed! I have a 40 gallon planted tank and need advice on appropriate micro and macro ferts.

40G Breeder
2 39w 6,000K bulbs on about 9 hrs
2 39w 650nm bulbs on about 9 hrs
Good water movement (Marineland c-360)
79 degrees
Amazon Sword, Anacharis, Balansae, Bananna, Blue Hygro, Red Ludwigia, Baby Tears, Red melon Sword, Micro Sword.

Issues: black edges and black spots on established plants, Balansae seems to simply be dying with blackening or withering leaves.

Had algae problem. Seems to be solved with good cleaning and addition of Siamese algae eaters.

Anacharis grows like crazy and stays beautifully green.

Currently dosing 3 times a week with Seacham's Aquavitro Envy. Started dosing with flourish excel yesterday.
