With Eco-Complete, once a week dose with Flourish Comp should be sufficient. As you do have the light, maybe dose it twice. Same amount (for your 36g, 1/2 teaspoon each dose, twice a week). I would remove the substrate tabs. With an enriched substrate these are not necessary. I have Flourite substrate in one tank, it is much the same as EC, and I use Flourish Comp once a week. But I have less light intensity.
Don't vacuum the substrate, the waste organics provide most of the CO2 as it is broken down by bacteria.
A photo if you can of the entire tank would help, in case there is something I'm not catching and might see. I'm wondering just what the dying leaves look like; are there brown blotches that spread, or yellowing from the edges?

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]
