LACK of iron? Really?
Is high lighting and non CO2 compatible? Sounds dodgey in terms of algae. Unless ofcourse liquid carbon products are used?

HC will grow fine in hard water. It couldn't really give a monkeys what the hardness was as long as it got enough CO2 and nutrients. HC loves NO3...
Remove old/tired leaves to promote new growth.
Not forgetting a healthy balance of light, CO2 and nutrients.
defdac wrote that tanks with a really low KH can cause some plants like Arcuata to get crumpled leaves when high nitrate is present.
Yes it is. It can kill shrimp and even some plants.
