Need help finding deficiency

Ok, so this is really stumped me. This is effecting New growth on my plants, the plant leaves are very weak and transparent. I am dosing EI, co2 is nice lime green. It seems to be impacting my Rotala rotundifolia the most

Try GH booster. My water isn't particularly soft but Rotala responded fast when I added a bit. Mine was stunted, not transparent. I think I tried just potassium too but wasn't impressed.

Would Iron deficiency cause plants to turn transparent in the new growth?

Do you use CO2? What light do you have and what size tank?

I agree with dosing iron, making sure you GH meets minimum required levels also
