I have recently started dosing DIY fertilizers as macros. I do a mix of ada step 3 and diy. what i have noticed is that my rotalla macrandra leaves melt the very next day i dose DIY fertilizers. I have seen this happening today for the third time.

I think i found the issue. Just want to discuss with you guys. May be some of you also faced the similar issue.
THe difference between the ada step 3 and DIY fertilizers was that as DIY i was putting all three NPK into tank but where as step 3 is majorly pottasium and iron. What i have realized is thata Rotala macrandra is very sensitive to nitrates. I did few experimants with the diy dosage and finally stopped feeding nitrates in the tank. Rotalla macrandra immediately reacted to it and now the growth is faster and no melting.
