I believe you have a nutrient deficiency. This is because you are getting algae and holes in your plants at the same time. There is a nutritional imbalance. Try dosing all the nutrients with a product like nilocg Thrive or a similar alternative. I've been dosing for over a month and my tank is basically algae free and super clean. Plants growing like crazy.

I agree with @GrampsGrunge. In my experience, having the co2 at exactly 30ppm isn't really a requirement, just a guideline. I have ~1.5 bps through a cheap chinese glass diffuser and my plants are going crazy. (Yes, my HC too.) I think the water chemistry and nutrients combines with controlled photoperiod is most important. Co2 is secondary but is still important nonetheless.
