Question Cardamine lyrata

Hi fellows,

I planted Cardamine lyrata in my new tank along with other plants, the details are below
Size: 140L/37G
Substrate: ADA Amazonia New + ADA substrate additives
Fert: ADA Green Brighty Step1 and Brighty K
Light: 0.6 watt per litre/ >2 watt per Gallon
and CO2

For first two weeks the growth of Cardamine lyrata was very impressive, in fact in the third week I did a little trimming also. But suddenly it started turning yellowish, specially new leaves and the new leaves are smaller in size also. So now I am very depressed to see this.

Can any one please let me know, what is the problem, and how can I fix it?
And also, how important the Lily pipe is, for planted aquarium?

Eagerly waiting for your responses.

What is your temperature? Cardamine lyrata prefers cooler waters.

You might also be experiencing a difference in growth patterns from before it came to you: emmersed versus immersed, or lower light versus high light. If it is still growing you might have no problem at all. My cardamine has always had a bright green hue.
