What is wrong with my plants?

I have a 46g with 96 watt cf lighting 10 hrs a day, pressurized CO2 and I dose 5ml of Plantex+B and a pinch of S2O4 (not very accurate). My GH=23 & KH = 13 (hard well water). I was thinking of going the EI method (just picked up some KH2PO4) I did test my water for KNO3 and it is around 80ppm (high), I also do 40% water changes once a week.
My crypts are curled and the older leaves have holes.

I think I am overfeeding my fish and that is the cause of the high KNO3, my tap water reads less than 5ppm.

Any help would be great...

Thanks,

Josh

I am no exert but I think you may have crypt rot. Sometimes the crypts just die off but the roots are still fine. Be patient they will grow back.

If you cannot keep daphnia alive...I wouldn't even trust you with my pet rock!
