Your KH is on point too? what kits are you using and did you confirm with other kits that your results were accurate?

How much light do you have them in?

Have they stayed in the same placement since you got them? Could it be flow related? Most of my Lords prefer pretty moderate flow to get proper extension.

Try killing all flow and feeding them some PE a few times a week and I bet they will puff back out.

Too much light? Black bugs? Worms? Too much flow? Aids?

All test were taken with Salifert test kits DKH is always at a steady 9.5. They do get moderate flow,as far as lighting they are on the SB under a Gen 1 LED fixture and the fixture is raised 9'" off the water surface due to the cooking of my sps.

I think it might be light but if I had to take a educated guess it might be AIDS Laughing
