Can you give us more information? Water conditions? How long has your tank been set up? What plants and fish do you have?

Probably from a lack of iron...

80L tank
Azoo clay based substrate
External Fluval 1000L/h
EI dosing 3 times macro 3 times micro
Pressurized CO2 system set to turn drop checker yellow since no fauna in tank
24W T5HO
Only flora is Eleocharis Parvula
50% weekly wc
Temperature is a bit on the hight side, over 30 degrees Celsius for sure

Leaves are turning white from Iron deficiencies? I thought they should have turned yellow ...

The temperatures of my tank during this period of time are a bit on the high side... around 32 degrees Celsius but I have no fauna it my tank yet.

Could it be the high temperatures? Because I dose EI and have never had this problem until now, I even overdose some times to make sure an abundance of macros and micros.

Now more leaves have died of and things are getting worse!
