    Hani, on your 4th image, Picture090.jpg

    I noticed some kind of deficiency that I am also having (on the very same plant). I have rammed up CO2 but so far no improvement. I dosed KNO3 and KH2PO4 3x weekly with NO3 at 10ppm and PO4 at 2ppm.

    Probably I need more K+ ?

    You could try doing a bit more pruning, to open up enough of the volume for water to circulate better. It is possible that many areas of the tank aren't getting much CO2. Just don't stop dosing phosphate! If you do, the growth will slow down dramatically, and green spot algae will start growing everwhere.
