I have a 12 gallon planted setup, 2 weeks old, with a 36W 6500K PLL & a regular dose of liquid fertilisers. As of now, my plants are in an ok state, except that I do see shedded leaves here & there which even my rosy barbs might be nipping. Off late, after reading a lot, I found that adding laterite is a good thing. So, would like to know whether at this stage, should I add it ? If yes, then how. My current gravel layer is around 3 inches.

Thanks Trevor. Well, that is something I would hate to do it though its my mistake. Anyways, elsewhere, in one of the forums I read that you get laterite nudgets which you can place near the roots. The downside is, you got to do this once in 2 months or so to replenish it. Any thoughts ?

As per Trevor's advice, am finally prepared to start all over again & rip apart the tank. Just for curiosity sake, I called up my LFS & told him abt the current state of my plants. He asked me to get pictures of them & was also mentioning abt some fertiliser called Volcano soil. But he warned me that its a hassle to implement it & takes arnd a week to settle. Also, its prone to fungus & might kill any livestock.
