I agree that from the info you are best with Flourish Comprehensive Supplement. Another near-identical product is Brightwell Aquatics' FlorinMulti.

Substrate fertilizer (the Flourish Tabs mentioned) will help large swords, one next to each, but this is not necessary. I use them because I have extremely soft water and using the tabs allows me to get by with one dose weekly of Flourish Comp rather than 2. [In addition I also have to dose calcium/magnesium, that's another story.]

The brown on the Anubias is likely diatoms, common in new tanks (during the first 2-3 months). Otos will ravenously eat it.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
