Need help w/blyxa

1135 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

not sure about yours, but when i had b. japonica, it got reddish towards the top. it could be my monitor/eyes, but yours looks more brown than what mine looked like. you can't really see the pink in this photo, but it's the only photo i could find that i haven't deleted.

if i'm not mistaken, Blyxa aubertii will get that sort of reddish/bronze color.
