Ludwigia Root Feeding ?

Hi there guys I have some red ludwigia in a 16g with 36 W PC with white reflector and its turning yello, so my question is are ludwigias root feeders and does it need iron tabs.

Cheers.

sounds like an iron deficeincy to me.... red ludwigia demands a lot of iron.... try some seachem iron....

don't know about the root feeding part... but presumably root tabs will leach iron into the water surrounding the roots which the plant can use....

just some thoughts.... any one else?
