Bacopa caroliana

Plants bubbling and growing. All have been healthy until last week. Cardinal
Plant leaves are getting thin and now in holes. This condition is now
spreading to some of the Bacopa caroliana which, along with the Cardinal
Plant, is in the area of most water circulation. The rest of the plants and
fish seem healthy. I am reluctant to add iron or micronutrient since I'm
just getting over BBA and still have a good amount of green hair algae, but
if that's what it takes, I'll do it.
Any help, advise, or experience will be appreciated.
