Something wrong with my plants?

About two weeks ago my plants were doing great with green vibrant colors but now just about all the leaves are dieing. I fertilize the ground monthly with root tabs and add leaf zone once a week what could the problem be?

Reabsorption of the leaf from tip to stem. Phosphate or nitrogen problems.

The tank is a 29 gallon with aqueon LED 2 daylight strips and a basic fluorescent light. The tank has a DIY CO2 system. The inhabitants are one angel fish and 5 ottos which where added about 2 days ago. It is just happening with my amazon swords (Ihave about three of them).

I'm inclined to agree with Positron that you're missing a macro somewhere. Leaf zone, I believe, only has K and Fe...you may be lacking in N and/or P. Which root tabs are you using?

I use API root tabs that I get from petco they are the only ones that they have.

If there is something I can buy for this problem then please name it. I am happy to buy anything that will work and not overly priced.
