I own a 75G Discus aquarium with C02 injection and a daily dosage of liquid fertlizant (Nlogic Thrive 3ml/day). All my plants grow well with one exception, my Echinodorus ... No presence of algae. I have done very well in the past with this kind of plant but it is not the case anymore so something change but I can not find it. The plant produces small leaves that do not mature and become necrotic ... Is it possible that my other plants consume all the nutrients (fast-growing plant) and deprive my Echi of essential nutrients? I was thinking of trying to increase very gradually (+1ml/day for the first week) the daily intake of liquid fertilizer to see if things improved . Is this a good approach?

Not a lot of info to go off of but my first thought was, if water column parameters are the same as when you had success (kh, gh, TDS, nitrates), than no. Don't increase your liquid fert dosing.

Yes, it might be a fertilizer problem but Echinodurus are really root feeders. If anything, try a few root tabs.

Less risk of algae bloom.
