Hey everyone. Been reading this forum for awhile but just recently joined as a member. New to planted tanks and everything seemed to be growing really well. Recently noticed my water sprite showing browning which made me look further and noticed some pin holes on anubia and hygro. All plants are still growing however new growth is coming in lighter than the older leaves. Have read some say potassium deficiency and other say iron. Curious what people think it could be.

65 gallon. Running 2 x 39w t5 flora sun, 1 x 39w ultra sun for 7 hours daily. Dosing 2 capful of excel daily. Dosing 6 pumps (12ml) of NilocG Thrive every 3rd day. PH is at 7.2 and stable.

Guppies, neons, and colony of blue velvet shrimp.

Any advice or input is much appreciated.

Sorry few attachments didnt load. Here are some more pictures of the tank and problems
