They were C. calamistratum too. I dosed Excel as per the instructions one evening, the next morning there were a few wisps of slimy stuff where the leaves had been and the bulbs were soft and mushy. I left the bulbs in case they could recover, but they didn't.
Fact is that I keep my calamistratum in approx 5dGH so that may be the case (ph between 6.3-7 and 24C). My corkscrew vallis (Tortifolia) melted completely in these conditions and is an ex-vallis now.They were C. calamistratum too.

It's interesting that yours aren't affected. Maybe it depends on the water conditions, possibly the glut reacts differently in different water. Some people find their Vallis tolerates glut perfectly well, although so many report that theirs doesn't.
If I remember right mine were in my tapwater, so 16°DH, pH7.6 and at 24°C.
This actually look like some form of diatoms to me (especially on sessiflora) plus I think your anubias is showing signs of Mg deficiency.
Looks like multiple issues to me.
Firstly the onset of diatoms. Which I consider to be the main issue.
A little green filament algae, not enough to worry about.
Possible slight Nitrogen deficiency, but hard to confirm.
And in the last picture, the round leaf plant does look like it's had some Magnesium deficiency, also I don't know what the white dots are on the leaves of this plant. Looks more like something dropping onto the leaves rather than CO2 deficiency.
thanks for the reply. So fairly sure Diatoms is right, it’s on my gravel, some other plant leaves and I just wipe away but would be lovely to finally get rid.
I can’t see the white dots? Could it be the bad photo, reflection or my snail eggs?
