Cause of yellowing of amazon sword leaves?

I am wondering if I need to fertilize. I have not done any artificial fertilizing to avoid algae issues (which has worked) or if it's not enough light. If you know let me know.

Just clip yellow leaf from the base of the plant because it won't turn back green and it promotes new growth. I had the same problem with my swords because I didn't know they were root feeders, but when adding root tabs and just adding iron ferts anyway, I never had yellow ever again.
