Nothing's wrong with them. I believe that happens when there's plenty of iron in the substrate and water. My crypts does that all the time..

20 gallon - Red Cherry Shrimp/Marbled crayfish tank
55 gallon - Dutch scape low-tech planted tank

250 gallon - Red hook silver dollar/Silver dollars/PB Jack Dempsey/Clown loaches/Tinfoil barb/Roseline sharks/Bala shark Monster fish tank

Looks normal to me. My Crypts have different shading on the leaves depending on where they are in the tank but are mostly darker just like that.
