What wrong with my Plants?

All these plants are new within the last 2 weeks. What I am seeing is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? Some of the leaves I can see now start to look as if they are transparent and are just falling apart.

Tank 90 Gallon
Light T5 2 x 54 each. I removed 2 bulbs a few weeks ago as it was suggested I had to much light. 8 hours a day, have drop down to 4 hours a day the last few days.

Parameters; ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates 10
CO2 injection with diffuser. 10 lbs CO2 tank
Fertilizer: Root tabs are under the swords, occasional iron, 8 drops of PMDD, every day.

This is what in the PMDD
one part of each of the following fertilizers.
potassium nitrate
potassium sulfate
Plantex CSM+B
magnesium sulfate

It really starting to get annoying as this happens all the time to my tank, and I don't know what I am doing wrong.

Please help

Yup... the oldest leaves on my amazon sword did the same thing shortly after I bought it. I just removed them. It's grown plenty of new ones since then and they're a different shape than the old leaves were.
