Hi everyone!

I have a 110 gal Tall tank (L48″ x W18″ x H30″) with a pressurized C02 a wavepoint 4 bulb T5HO for lighting( but i only use 3 bulbs).
I am doing EI dosing of micro and macro (saturday WC)

my plants are:

Banana plant
Crypt Wendtii
jungle vals
Java fern
java moss
Madagascar lace plant
narrow leaf giant hygro (not doing well)
ludwigia repens (not doing well)
Brazilian micro sword

I am thinking of going low tech, ill remove all my stem plants and just add root plants like crpyts or amazon sword.

Here is my question: do i still need to do the EI dosing if majority of my plants are root plants? stopping the EI woukld it affect my anubias and java fern?

Do i still need presurized C02?

Thanks for the quick reply :)

My ludiwgia repens and giant hygro lost all of the bottom leaves and some of the stem(bottom) started to rot but top portion is showing some life for got to mention my water wisteria is also rotting from the bottom stem, thinking of of converting to low tech since i have success with my root plants, does root plants benefit from pressurized C02?

here are some pics
