However there are some yellow zones on some plants, is there something wrong with them?
Very well planned tank!!!

my guess is the yellowing has to do with the intensity of the lighting and the fact that the blyxa is so close to the surface.

If that is HC, then it is the fluffiest looking HC I've ever seen! I was thinking it looked more like HM, but it seemed to be too nicely manacured for that. I'm stumped

There also might be a bit of dwarf hairgrass in the front righthand corner.

it is HC...there is a bit of dwarf hairgrass on the sides. The other plant is Blyxa Japonica...the yellowing in the blyxa is from the lighting....there is a patch or so of algae in the HC which I am getting rid of....thanks for all the comments!
