Default Yellowing Sword Plants

I have the dardest trouble with sword plants yellowing. I have tried potassium as well as iron supplements but that doesn't seem to help them. On the other hand my rotala and other plants are sending roots out all over the place.

Any insights
10 gallon
1 internal powerhead and sponge filter
1 betta
3 rams.

Help would be nice

Then you have to worry about releasing BPA into the water. Although studies have proven this causes cancer in people nothing has proven it doesn't affect the life span of fish.

So what are you trying to say , the plant food he suggested is what you are feeding your sword plants. POTASSIUM AND IRON.
