OK so after several people suggested i get some more fertilizers i went and bought the following:
Flourish Comprehensive 2-3X weekly, 5ML (1 tsp)
Flourish excel 7X weekly 7.5ML (1.5 tsp)
Flourish trace 2-3X weekly, 1 Tbsp (15ml)
Flourish phosphorous 2-3X weekly, 7.5ML (1.5 tsp)
Flourish Potassium 2-3X weekly, 1 Tbsp (15ML)
I havent really established a fertilizer regime, i am working on that.
I also have Flourish root tabs under my swords and lotus
And the substrate is 10%-40% flourite, as well as thin and course standard gravel
A few old pics of the tank. note that this was before i added 1-2 dozen new plants.
My tank is lightly planted.
