Whacilli not soo pink


HI all,
I purchased a bunch from my LFS and they seemed fine and healthy. I skipped a day of dosing trace and iron and macros and noticed the completely lost their color. I was back on track the very next day. I dose the macros everyother day and csm=b plus extra iron and some seachem iron on the opposite days,all GW ferts. I have 4-65watt pc's and my co2 ppm at 45. What happened to them? What the trick with these guys?

Going out on a limb here and guessing you are talking about Rotala wallichii?

Not sure... you seem to have lots of light and lots of CO2. Some of the red plants turn redder when NO3 is low, say around 5 ppm. Maybe that's the case, high NO3 levels keeping it green?
