Nutrient deficiency?

I got my 75G fully planted about a month ago. I'm noticing this on my amazon swords, but just a few. Is this a nutrient deficiency, overcrowding? The tank was lightly populated until yesterday (7 Cory cats).

The tank has medium-high light, CO2, and I've been dosing with easy green and easy iron usually 4-5 X a week. PH around 6.6 dKH between 2-4. Any suggestions welcome.

Following this because I am having the exact same issue with my Amazon sword plant. Mine has been in the tank for a month, also. I am thinking nitrogen deficiency since my nitrates are low and my other plants are showing very pale new growth, but not 100% sure.
