Both were red/purple when I first got them, the red crispus died off and grew back green, and the rotala stayed purple, new growth was green and then the purple leaves dropped off, what do I need? Its med light with DIY Co2, upgrading them both soon.

I would think lighting would be the issue. The lighting they received before you was most likely far greater than yours. It may also be that they came from a immersed environment and are adapting to your submersed environment. Could be a combination of both.

Oh right, it does seem to darken as the top starts poking out, which would mean its getting more light as its closer, thanks guys, its annoying because the purple colours are what sets a tank off, I'll just have to wait until I get it sorted.
