Plant troubles, need help

I recently bought two larger crypt plants, not sure exactly which kind, but they have broad leaves atop long stems approx 12 inches tall. They have only been in my tank a week now, and one leaf on each plant is yellowing and starting to deteriorate away. What could be causing this? Any thoughts? Side note, for the most part all of the rest of my plants seem to be doing well. Except my ludwigia repens which the bottom leaves keep falling off either bc a fish is picking them off or i dont know. Please help. Thanks

Some Crypts will do this sometimes when they are replanted in water with different conditions. As long as the rest of your plants are cool I'd guess your new crypts will come around soon enough.
