Hi guys, I just discovered this forum and was wondering if I could have some assistance. I recently got these plants a week prior to the photos shown below. I am not sure/ unable to identify what nutrient deficiency they are suffering from :'(
Prior to making this post, I was adding a tiny amount (>2ml) of LCA carbon fertilizer and a few drops of AF Macro, because I really would like to keep my plants alive)
I previously did have plants (the anubias in the pics, some viney looking things and both of the plants in the pictures whose names i have forgotten) when this tank was established about 10 months ago, and they were going GREAT!! until after a few months they up and died on me. Some advice would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like phosphate or nitrogen deficiency (possibly both): Deficiency chart

Are you dosing the recommended amount of AF macro? "A few drops" seems a bit low.
The instructions say 5mL per 100L two times a week - My tank is 21L so I have been putting approximately 1mL. Should i continue doing this and wait for them to get better?

Yes, continue with adding ferts, and monitor your plants, especially any new growth, as that will best indicate any lingering issues. I'd give it at least 2 weeks.
