What nutrient am I lacking?

This has been showing up on a fee of my water wisteria leaves any ideas? I have been using the EI method for fertilizer I am not sure if I am doing it right as I'm dosing with Seachem products can I be missing a nutrient? It is a 10 gallon high tech with pressurised co2 and a 24' Finnex Ray 2 for lighting. Thank you it's my first time posting here so thank you for any help.

Maybe Iron? Without Iron plants cant produce clorophyll and without clorophyll there is no green.
My Ludwigia Repens leafs get like that when the top leafs block their light too but it doesnt seem to be the issue here.

I dose iron every other day but this leaf did happen to be tucked under a larger leaf so that could have been the case. Thanks for the help!

The leaf is not able to grow the cells and tissues needed to keep up with the amount of light and photosynthesis that is occurring.

Usually this is due to lack of co2 reaching the leaf surface.

Hi spartan.b42,

Welcome to TPT!

Do you have soft water where you live? If so, you may want to try some Seachem Equilbrium to increase the Ca and Mg in your water; add about 2 teaspoon per 10 gallons and see if the new growth improves (old growth will not show much change). When you do your weekly 5 gallon water change add 1 teaspoon to replace the nutrients you removed. Let us know how the new growth looks in a couple weeks.
