I feel like a horrible person. I thought my root tabs had iron, they did not, so I have not dosed iron in this month's old tank until yesterday when I noticed the label on the tabs when I was rooting through my aquarium drawers.


Edit, man, that pic quality is bad. The forum pic host really degrades the image.

Possibly, although some plants have lighter leaves new leaves which eventually darken up as the leaf grows.

It's some variant of Ludwigia. All the new growth is yellow/white with distinctly dark veining through new leaf growth.

I started dosing iron yesterday, I'm hoping to see some recovery over the next few weeks
