@Redpanda I think its an echinodorus of some sort

Just looked at the echinodorus and they are pretty close looking to what I have...
My Lagenandra meeboldii Red should look more red...
If I can find a replacement light for fluval 90 going from 7.5w to around 15w to 20w that fits in the tank and still be able to put covers on...
Those Green Meeboldii will be quite Red :)...
I yet to find one.

Have you tried testing your aquarium water iron (FE) content?

Strong light and or dissolved iron in the water column causes leaves to turn red or pink colour.

No I have not...
But saying that I do use Easylife Ferro which is Iron Fertilizer...
Maybe I should stop with the Ferro and do a test on Iron.
I'm pretty sure it the light as the Rotala don't have any leaf at the bottom so they are like sticks at the bottom for about 3 inch...
