Mine periodically sheds, but the goldfish tend to pick at it a lot.

Another thing you want to consider: you're not going to see much improvement on your sword if you don't have the right lights. Dosing ferts without good lighting is just going to lead to algae outbreaks. Any particular reason are you dosing with Flourish Excel (CO2 supplement) and Flourish Iron?

That's what the owner of a well established LFS suggested for me. You mentioned lighting; I'm running at 2 wpg. 6500K bulb. Any suggestions? I'm prob gonna start a new thread about my sword.
