    Well, if the edges only are yellowing and the leaves develop holes, it could be a potassium deficiency. If the entire leaf and plant turns yellow, it could be an iron deficiency. Do you use micro ferts in the tank?

    Hi Fishguy18,

    Yellowing leaves can also be caused by a nitrogen deficiency, are you dosing a fertilizer?

    Is it just that one leaf or are others showing deficiency?

    Since it is just that one and you are dosing ferts, I do not think its a deficiency but just an older leaf dying. It happens. Could of gotten damaged.
