Question PLANT QUESTION IS IT Ok?

Hi everyone, I purchased my Anarcharis last saturday and it was nice and green, but now all the leaves are like really transperant... Is this normal or did I do something wrong. My other plants are doing awesome by the way.

A few of the leaves have done that on mine. I added a fertiliser and now it looks lush again.

I've been adding Fertiliser but haven't seen it respond yet. I know I read about lose of color at the beggining because it still adjusting to the new aquarium but I don't know how long it takes to recover and start looking nice again

Fertilizer isn't an instant fix-all. Plants need time to adjust to a new environment. They can take even longer than bettas at a few months to become established. Most of mine drop leaves for a while after I add them to a new tank. Lighting is also going to play a large role in plant success.
