Hi, I've been around this forum for a while but never posted anything. Can anyone tell me if my HC and Glossostigma are dying? I've noticed that the leaves are dying and turning yellow. Lighting 9 hours on timer and leaving co2 1 bubble/second 24 hours. I also use excel daily. I'm not sure what's missing or whether the plants aren't getting enough nutrients. Also, is this considered a high-tech tank?

Update: I made a noob mistake, I wasn't really using any fertz besides the api root tabs and it's been only 1 month since I started my first planted tank. Anyways, I picked up some fertz at a local store and some more HC to fill in the blank spots. Here's a comparison of a healthy HC compared to mine.
Pearling the second I planted them
Re-planted them and spread them out a little better.
