That is a sword plant of some sort. If it is turning red it's normal.

Melon sword would be my cautious guess, I'm no expert though I do admire them. And agreed, it's normal

We've all been noobs at some point or another. Now that we know it's a red sword, got any full tank shots? Might as well show off your new set up, right?

I did end up with two betta for him, they are his "favorite" fish. So long as they're interested support it even if they are glow fish
