The new growth coming in white seems to be an iron deficiency, and the old leaves turning pale seems to be a magnesium deficiency. Here's an article that shows these deficiencies.

Looking at the datasheet for Seachem flourish they say it's to be used in conjunction with the other products (N,P,K,Micros) and doesn't seem like they intended for it to be used as the main nutrient provider.
