too much co2 = yellow growth?

I can't find the chart I am looking for so I guess I'll just ask...

- Is there a reason my plants are growing in so yellow when they should be red, other than an iron deficiency?

- I remember seeing a chart detailing the relationship between certain elements regarding uptake, as in 'too much this prevents uptake of that.' Is there something I could be looking into as to why my CSM+B isn't providing enough iron? (assuming that's the issue here).

- In regards to this, it looks like I'm seeing a calcium problem also with distorted new growth, bending downward, though everything is growing alright.

-Someone suggested lowering co2?

Here are the details:
+pH is low, below 6 as far as I can tell.
+KH=2 GH=5
+Just checked Nitrate and it looks like 20-40 (didn't know it was so high)
+2x39watt t5HO for around 7.5 hrs
+Drop checker reading green at lights on, bright green by days end
+E.I. 3x ... 1/2tsp Nitrate, 1/4tsp Potassium, about 1/4tsp Phosphate
+Using Solution for CSM+B around 12ml of the 1cup/1tbsp mix

Thanks in advance for any help,

Not exactly, but this does provide some info. I was seeing a chart that went more in depth about what is included in the calcium deficiency (could be K overdose).

I'm wondering if my overdosing of a particular nutrient is preventing uptake of iron, assuming iron issues are why my red plants are so yellow.

what plant do you mean and is it the only plant that is affected?

I was really excited about setting up this high tech tank, so I initially picked up a lot of color - aromatica, repens, rotundifolia, tenellus... all of which have since lost color and have been growing yellow.

are you dosing iron outside of CSM B? If not, try that.

I'm not dosing extra iron. I've made some tweaks and got some good insight from people over the last few days, so I'm gonna see how things play out after I do tonights water change before I pick up another iron supplement.
