What is going on with my 53b?

Hi

My tank has been going for about 7 months now, it seems nice and stable, no visible algae apart from a bit of green spot here and there which I'm happy to accept.

I've got Lilaeopsis, Helanthium Tenellum, Vallis nana, Crypt Willisii, Bacopa Caroliniana? and Siamensis 53b.

They all seem to be growing well except for the 53b. It develops nice green fresh looking shoots then after a couple weeks they get loads of holes and basically disintegrate. I'd really like to conquer this plant.....any idea what's amiss?

Juwel 125l
1000lph internal filter with spray bar.
28w LED at 50%, 7 hours duration.
Co2 diffuser placed inside filter (makeshift reactor), start 4 hours before lights on, end 2 hours before lights off. Drop checker light green/yellow at lights on (see photo).
Aquasoil powder, 8ml (4 pumps) TNC complete daily.
50% water change, filter sponges cleaned, glass scraped etc weekly.
Rasboras, Tetras, Cherry and Amano shrimp.

Thanks
