I suggest you check your nitrate levels first.
Lack of green pigment is usually a sign of nitrogen limitation. If you have
fish in the tank, phosphate limitation is unlikely. An iron deficiency is a
little more likely, but not much, since you do supplement with iron.

Check the Krib for full deficiency symptoms.
