Plants

I have several plants in my 15 gallon aquarium, couple of guppies an school of neons, shrimps & 2 zebra loaches. Light 21 w 7000 Kelvin. I'm adding daily liquid CO2 as per dose recommend, weekly liquid fertilizer. The Java moss is doing well but other plants start melting after 2 to 3 weeks. Any help?

What exact light?
Height of tank?
No such thing as liquid CO2. Seachem Flourish Excel? How much?
What liquid fertilizer and how much / how often?
What other plants are melting?
pH?
kH?
gH?
Water change schedule?

Looks like the java ferns and moss are doing well. With your current dosing they should be doing well.

The other plants look like recent purchases? Helanthium spp. to my eye. They need to be planted into substrate. Looks like very large rocks? or is there some finer material underneath those stones?

The Java moss attached to the draftwood wood are doing very well. The Anubis also attached to it but not so much success. The remaing are Amazon sword and some others I'm not so much familiar with names. The bottom is layer of big gravels nothing else (as per shop I can plant the plants without substrate).

Swords really should be planted into a substrate of sort. They might work for you though.

I don't see any anubias in the photo? It should be growing well. I don't see any obvious signs that you are doing anything wrong in terms of light / fertilizer / plants

The melting parts look like emersed growth. The plant is transitioning into submerged growth.

Nothing you can do, trim away the melting parts, keep up with lighting and fertilizer and hope they grow
