You're right not to be too concerned. I don't think you've overfed, and you're not feeding any more you say so any slight overdosing is now in check. That small leaf looks a bit like light-burn and at 30cm it perhaps is a little close for this strain, but not by much - perhaps back off to 35cm (I'd not be too worried personally). She looks really nice. Leaf fingers that have some damage on them I prune. They're not doing to plant any good, and they worry me so they're gone! If more appear in their place, then I get worried, but not before.

I dont see any burnt tips maybe im blind. Your leaves are very dark green. You are at or about to cross the border of nitrogen toxicity. I see your going onto the third week of flower. Back a bit off the nitrogen.

Hi @Rezdestroyer ! As mentioned by other growers, burnt tips / yellow tips are the first signs of overfeeding. But what I see is a slight nutrients-burn, and a huge light-burn! Your weird leaf has received too much light to develop properly. I'd recommend to buy a lux-meter so you'll be able to make tests all around your plant. Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!

You most likely have nutrient burn this is caused by using too many nutrients in your feeding. This can be more disastrous than having a plain nutrient deficiency because it will start to cause nutrient dificiencies caused from nutrient lockout. You should water with plain water over the next 5-7 feedings and cut back the nutrients you are using to 1/4 the recommended dosage on the bottle. With soil there is really no reason to feed your plants more than once per week. Make sure that you are testing your TDS/EC from the nutrient treated water that you are putting into the plant as well as test the runoff that comes out the bottom. If you want you could also use an enzyme like sledgehammer by fox farms in a couple of your next plain watering to break down any salts remaining in your soil. Remember if you don’t treat the nutrient burn this will cause other dificiencies and can cause you to think you need to add more nutrients. This is not the case, always flush first cut nutrients to 1/4 the recommended dosage and then if signs contiue raise the dosage 1/4 at at time. Ex. 1/4 - 1/2, 1/2 - 3/4. Hope this helps and good luck on your grow!

Burnt tips is an early sign of nutrient overdose; another been the really dark leaves (too much nitrogen).
While the feed strength can be low, the soil can still have many nutrients.
Rule of thumb, if there is no sign of deficiency, then there's no need to feed yet.
Stop feeding for now, let the plant feed from the soil.
With 7 gallons, you might not have the need to feed.
Also don't feed more than once a week.
