Need help w/blyxa

1136 10
I got these plants about a week ago. They started out a beautiful green...thanks, as you can see they have started to turn redish. Is this a problem, ie-transplant shock or a nutrient deficiency. I dose basically to what is recommended for Flourish, Excel, Iron, Trace, and I have pressurized CO2(ph stays b/t 6.8 and 7.00) Khstays b/t 4-6. If anyone can let me know, please do about the blyxa, as well as any comments on tank overall. I had just done a little moving of plants, so the tank is a little cloudy in this pic. I also did a cutting of the rotala and ludwig in the right side tonight that is not shown in this pic...sorry. too lazy to upload more pics tonight. Thanks all

Blyxa turns red in high light. When I trim mine and let it float up at the surface it gets a lot of light a turns a bright red color.
