Help my plants are dying!

Ive never had aquarium plants before, but i came home today and my plants are dying! My amazon sword in particular is turning yellow and brown. I use a liquid fertilizer api leafzone liquid fertilizer to be exact. I heard that i just need some f
Root tabs, what kind do u reccomend and do they cloud the water? Ive already spent so much money on these plants! They cant die!

hrm I'm not sure what is causing them to die so fast, do they have like parasites when they came in or something that is nomming on them? Perhaps they need certain care and lighting, what species do you have? I'll help you research info.

I just planted swords for the first time, they weren't looking to good til I upped my lights and added root tabs and ferts. What lights are you using? I upgraded to 2 10watt 6500k's. I also planted them in terracotta pots to raise up closer to the light which seems to help. my plants are looking alright now. They don't seem as easy as they're said to be :/

adding root tabs will probably do the trick, it worked for me.
