This is either a deficiency or too much of something... trying to remember exactly what dark green means.

How are you fertilizing the tank? What lighting do you have, and what are the tank dimensions? Do you use CO2?

It is far easier to eliminate any possible deficiencies by starting out with good lighting, good fertilizing, and CO2. Then you will have no deficiencies.
