With my limited experience, sounds like not enough CO2 possibly. Although Vals are pretty easy to grow anywhere. Would help to know more about your tank. I recently had a CO2 issue that had been going on for close to a month before I figured out what was going on. I put some Rotala Indica in my tank and the stems never straightened out from the way they droop a little when you first put them in there. Fixed my CO2 issue and within a few days those stems were as straight as a nail. The CO2 issue didn't affect the other plants I had in my tank, but I did get a bad bout of BBA.

cant be co2, i have a pressurized co2 at 2 bubble/sec in a 15 gallon biocube. The dropchecker is almost yellowish. I remember reading a while back this could be one of the macro deficiencies, but cant find the thread anymore.
