Strange leaves Echinodorus Bleheri

My echinodorus bleheri is making some strange leaves, or is this normal? I've already put some roottabs in (clay). The leaves do have a normal green color (had the light on RGB colors when I made the photo)

Yeah I'm quite sure, it's not anubias for sure. It's the photo problably, I'll try to make a better photo
Thank you all for your answers. I'm puzzled, because deficiency shouldn't be possible because of the roottabs (and would show on other plants?). Too little organic material, maybe, because I was very careful on the soil so there probably isn't that much. But wouldn't that be compensated by organic waste of plants and fish? And wouldn't is show on other plants?

And sodium, there is not that much in my tapwater so where would that come from? Is there a way to measure it?
Thanks for the help, I'll just wait and see then. There are worse things than problems that might get solved all by themselves ;)
Not compensated by fish and water column, because it is a very heavy root feeder. I have the same problem with my lemon plant in the garden, but it is parasite-induced. Maybe it is an aquatic analogue? Have you disinfected the plant properly, before it went into the tank. And if so; how?
No I did not desinfect it, I just rince the plants
