Google plant deficiency finder. There's tons of photos and info out there. If you want to be more specific add "aquarium" to the search. Happy hunting.

If you enjoy trying to figure out what deficiencies you have, and correcting them one at a time, then look up the tables as suggested. But, if you much prefer working on the planting, the tank maintenance, CO2 (if you use it), etc., then read https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/11...-regimes_.html and follow the dosing tables there. You will then have enough of every nutrient and will not have to do the deficiency hunting.
