Could be lighting becasue high lights will bring out the red on some plants, in your case your Blyxa could be turning red becasue of your lighting.

High light, Iron, and low nitrates could be factors of plants turning red. Depending on the specifications of your setup, it could be anyone of them or all three.

On the other hand, I think Blyxa japonica looks a lot better when it gains color rather than being just plain green.
