Sounds  like  fert  issue  rotala  macrandra  mainly  loves  macros  first  and  calcium  and  yep  it  requires  micros  too  what  water  are  you  using,  and  dosing  directly  on  the  plant  or  water  column  doesn't  make  any  difference,  like  i  said  try  to  maintain  2ppm  po4  then  you  will  see  your  macrandra  lush  growth  i  use  ei  dosing  stock  solution  below  is  the  site  where  i  used  to  calculate  the  amount  of  the  salt.
 
 http://rota.la/
 
 And  for  tweaking  in  ppm  i  use  the  below  site  where  i  increase  or  decrease  the  gms  to  see  the  ppm  which  i  want  to  get  in  my  tank
 
 http://www.theaquatools.com/fertilization-calculator
 
 And  don't  make  too  much  csm+b  solution  make  it  for  a  week  or  two  not  more  than  that  or  you  can  see  mold  forming  in  the  solution  if  you  really  want  to  make  solution  for  long  run  then  you  need  to  add  excel/hcl/ascorbic  acid,  best  is  ascorbic  acid  where  mold  and  powder  substance  never  forms  for  long  time.
 
 and  like  i  said  for  good  lush  growth  for  macrandra  you  need  2ppm  po4  and  5ppm  no3  with  good  co2  and  light  you  will  see  these  plant  thrives  like  anything.
 
 i  too  dose  csm+b  with  5ml  flourish  every  week  mine  is  heavily  planted  below  is  a  comparison  it  might  help  you
 
 http://www.theplantedtank.co.uk/traces.htm                

 
 Thanks  Andrew  will  follow  the  above-
 
 the  first  thing  I  will  check  is  the  pH  level  now  in  comparison  with  CO2  (as  per  aquatools)
 The  make  new  solutions  as  per  your  advice-
 NO3  increase  by  from  3ppm  to  5  ppm  is  not  a  problem
 EDI  for  now  will  be  4  days  a  week-1.50ml  both  solutions
 
 
 Thanks  Ram-  god  bless                

 
 Wow  Wow  don't  use  any  test  kit  it's  totally  waste  and  no  need  to  test  PH  level  also,  i  just  use  that  site  for  fert  calculation  and  to  find  the  ppm  level  i  dose  inside  my  tank,  and  i  use  only  TDS  meter,  co2  drop  checker  and  got  PH  meter  just  do  a  PH  profile  test  to  check  my  co2  distribution  in  my  tank  only  for  this  i  use  ph  meter.  PH  profile  test  is  the  one  best  method  to  find  your  co2  distribution.
 
 it  depends  on  you  tank,  for  example  most  of  my  plants  are  po4  lovers  so  i  keep  5ppm  no3  and  2.5ppm  po4,  macrandra  loves  po4  much  so  till  your  plant  get  settle  have  po4  high  and  no3  less  5ppm  is  good  and  also  have  a  eye  on  other  plants.

 Thanks  Andrew,  is  UV  lamp  necessary?  this  tank  is  getting  over  loaded  now.  Chuckle  
 
 tell  me....  when  you  look  at  a  tank  with  a  layout,  having  numerous  plants  and  fishes  what  does  one  search  first?  
 
 AND  ...what  does  a  total  layman  try  to  look?

 UV  lamp  not  necessary  till  you  have  green  water  issue,  your  not  overloaded  it's  perfect  only  Smile,  if  you  think  yours  is  overloaded  what  you  will  think  about  below  tank  video.
 
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq5sO2nScLI
 
 when  looking  at  tank  it  depends  on  the  person  what  they  like,  but  overall  it  should  be  pleasing  to  eye  for  that  you  don't  need  good  hard  scape  you  can  bring  it  in  your  plant  growth  itself  like  above  video.  I  always  see  the  plant  health  first.
 
 and  in  my  experience  when  a  layman  sees  my  tank  first  he  will  ask  where  you  get  this  realistic  plastic  plants  ROFL   ROFL   ROFL  after  telling  it's  real  they  will  saw  wow.

 @  Andrew  -  Lovelyy  video  good  layout  atleast  its  properyly  planted  in  groups/bushes
 
 The  best  way  to  find  its  overloaded  or  not,  is  to  put  a  small  light  (  turn  off  the  tank  light  first)   near  the  glass  just  above  the  substrate  and  see  how  much  area  is  free  of  plantation.  Or  use  a  torch  .
 
 when  my  mom  sees  the  tank,  first  thing  she  says  is  "  Its  good  for  the  Kids"   Shocked  ,  fishes  are  kids   ROFL

 Some  more  updates-  have  trimmed  the  ambulia  and  parrot  feather
 
 
 
 
 Added  new  plants
 
 
 Carpet  is  slowly  spreading
 
 
 
 
 Lot  of  effort  and  time  to  reach  this  levels
 
 Now  I  have  to  do  arrangements  in  such  a  way  that  evey  plant  is  actually  visible  and  identified
 
 Then  I  will  go  fo  the  environmental  stability

 I  kept  lily  for  colour  balancing  by  macro-  because  this  is  the  only  plant  which  will  respond  to  dosing  for  colour.  If  this  plant  gets  red  that  means  all  macrandra  are  also  getting  their  nuitrition   too  +  the  macro  proportion  is  also  considered
 
 
 
 
 Here  the  growth  looks  a  little  stunttted,  but  nevermind,  its  getting  trimmed  later.

 your  plant  clearly  shows  nutrient  deficiency  and  from  below  pic  looks  like  nitrogen  issue  what  kind  of  dosing  you  are  following  can  you  provide  details  and  also  check  for  co2  distribution  in  your  tank  to  find  the  co2  distribution  best  is  do  a  PH  profile  check.
