turkey, "two toned"..as in interveinal chlorosis?..veins remaining somewhat green, but a fading of color between the leaf veins?..not total yellowing, but a faded green. Are the leaves "cupping" or canoe shaped?
if so, a sign of magnesium defficiency.
Epsoms salts or a product called "Epi-grow" I believe it is, should fix a mag problem. I believe 1 tsp per gallon of water for the salts to be added to the soil, 1/4 tsp p/gal for foliar feeding.

I'm on well water and had simular problems but it affected all the weeker plants.
there could be built up elements and or salts in the bottom of the pot. try to test the water drain off out of the bottom with a PPM meter.
you can mask the problem with CAL-MAG http://www.carefreegarden.com/pages/Fertilizers/CAL3001.shtml
until you figure out your exact problem.
I've switched to a Reverse Osmosis water and salved all my problems.
your best bet would be to add it with your water days with some B1 or aussi tonic.
1300ppm food day (regular feeding program)
400ppm water day (cal-mag + Aussi tonic or some kind of B1)
only use this on the afected plant because the increased nitogen might cause the plant to strech in the flowering stage.

just out of curiosity what is your PPM's out of the tap?

I wish I knew..I havent tested it yet, Though I just switched to rain water that I caught in buckets. 'Cause im willing to bet that the water out of my tap is "pool water"
