Fertiliser question

Hi all I am hoping someone can help me out here
I am currently running a 200litre high tech planted tank
and having problems with plant growth and die off of leaves

the plants are growing just very slowly and turning brown quickly
I am CO2 injecting to 30ppm and dosing Tropica specialised fertiliser,
my thinking is the fertiliser is the problem
I am currently dosing twice the recommended daily dose and not seeing any results
latest water test gives me readings of
PH <6 test kit does not read lower
DKH 0.9
NO3 20ppm
PO4 <0.05

any suggestions appreciated
