your HC looks "leggy"
if I were you, I would trim aggressively, replant where possible, and do more water changes.
i don't know what "aquarium soil" means - is this aquasoil?

also please provide more info on your tank - i.e. what light, filter, fertz if any

Do you add any fertilizers besides what's in the substrate?
