OK, pulled all plants out a bit - i did bury the pygmy's quite deep as they looked more 'scattered' that way with random leaves poking up, but for the health of the plants up they come
@Byron yes, 8dGH is correct so I'm assuming that minerals in the water column is not the issue, I'll see how they go now I've pulled them up a bit...

I have Indian Almond Leaves as leaf litter under the arch of the driftwood as a refuge for my future corys bought them online since its the wrong time of year for oak leaves!

All sounds good.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
