Any help will be appreciated

Aquarium specs:
Tank size-6 gallons
Lighting-Finnex planted-on for about 7.5 hours
Substrate-Fluval spectrum
Paintball co2 setup-generally runs 3 bubble per second ish
Note-I do have a drop checker inside but its not setup right so its color wont tell accurate measurements
Fertilizers-I dose Flourish trace, Flourish and Flourish Iron(I dose each bottle twice a weak)
Problem-
My problem is my baby dwarf tears is browning off and dying. Im not sure why its browning off and dying along with my hydroctyl and staurgeyns(i think thats what they are as i cant remember). What is the problem? What should I do? Do I need and fertilizers?

Bump: Oh I forgot to mention but thank you for any help

Problem-
I will assume that the "Flourish" mentioned is Comprehensive?

You are only dosing micros thus far.
Macros such as NPK are the big ones that plants consume more of.

Definitely buy it from NilocG. That's where I get all my fertilizers and I also bought a co2 reactor from him. (Yea I know I could've built one myself but I was lazy lol) I'm currently using his all-in one fertilizer. http://nilocg.com/thrive

OMG thanks guys for all the help. I do know I will need to get some CSM+B but since I have a ton of micros I was just curious if I could not do it for now. Also I just wanted to make sure that I just need to buy my macros(NPK) and Nilocg is a good seller. Thanks a lot again guys I owe you guys one.

I'm using Nilocg's ferts along with many others here, and they have been great for many of us. He's very responsive here if you need to ask him questions. If you think you'll run out of Flourish Comp before you run out of macros, I'd toss it on the order since you are already paying for shipping.

Why do you feel that csmb is so expensive, his package without the gh booster includes it and it's $16.

Just a noob
