Plant deficiency

I am having random leaves melt at the stem and float up to the surface. The leaf itself looks fine, along with the general health of the plant. Any ideas? Do you see anything from these pictures that would point to a certain nutrient deficiency? Doesn't happen all the time...roughly one leaf a day. I am dosing PPS-PRO macros and micros along with pressurized CO2. I also have medium to high lighting.

They could be breaking of from the lower portion of the stems due to lack of light maybe. Are there any pinholes in the leaves at all? Since keeping corymbosa I've noticed it loves potassium and a lot of it.

Just a noob

Thanks for the responses guys. No, there are no pinholes in the leaves....the leaves look healthy other than the small area on the stem where it melted off of the main stem. It is possible it could be from lack of light since the plants are packed pretty tight but wouldn't the rest of the leaf be yellow? I have just started to increase my dosing to see if that helps so if it is a potassium deficiency maybe this will take care of it.
