I've a heavily planted tank with 1.7wpg, pressurised co2, ei dosing, adding flourish and flourish iron on the 'non macro days', use eco complete substrate

after 3 weeks of ei dosing i'm seeing a significant difference and no algae (apart from the one very small patch on a rock)

however still seeing the odd hole on the odd plant, most noticeable on the tiger lotus and a little on the vals

question is do i up my ei dosing?

You will not need to add more.
Since the tank is new, some plants take time to settle in.

The weird growth can occur for a few weeks, and is pretty normal, even if you transplant terrestrial plants, they can respond the same way.
