Question for all you advanced planters

I got rotala indica in my tank. It grows good, just like all the other plants. But i have a question. What is this? (The dark green)
It isnt algae. For nutrients this is what i have;
Iron- flourite gravel
Potassium- flourish potassium
Phosphorus- a lot of it in my well water
Nitrogen- a lot of fish
Trace- well water has a lot in it
Co2- diy co2 system and excel
Might get flourish comprehensive and maybe the liquid iron.

There more of a black, but ya. It isnt black beard though. Also some leaves are deformed. It looks like it is missing something.

Mine does that, too. They still grow like crazy, however. I just attributed it to older leaves. That isn't indica, by the way. It's really confusing and I haven't pinpointed exactly what it is but I know it's not indica. It's another form of rotala.
