Iron deficiency?

My Rotala's new growth looks a little yellow / white and you can see the veins in leaves. They have been in the tank for about three weeks. Does this look like an iron deficiency?

Hey Jenth

I'm by no means a plant expert but that rotala doesn't even look like its converted! Its foliage growth tends to take on a more elongated look. Its current lacklustre appearance might just be from the way it was grown before it came to rest in your fish tank. Also If you were to dose something maybe instead of iron try nitrogen (with CO2).
