Hi,
Unfortunately this plant (what it's name?) is getting yellow.
What should I do? To take it out of tank?

do you have any other pics? it kinda looks like egeria densa but I can't tell.

Not sure about it yellowing either.

Definitely looks like egeria densa(anachris) to me...as to the yellowing do you mean the brown foliage? If so, that's(somewhat) normal in new setups since lfs supplies are usually so poor. Looks pretty healthy to me, though. No need to worry if the problem doesn't persist. If it does, it may be due to density blocking light to the lower portions. Again, not a major problem but you may want to thin the plant to keep light penetrating evenly. A little dieback isn't a major concern in most planted tanks, just the course of things(especially while first getting the hang of things). If it spreads through the majority of the plant/more of the tank it's something to worry about. Otherwise, just clean up the parts you find aesthetically displeasing and keep on keepin' on.

I think that anacharis has wider leaves. Anyway, I like this plant.
