I usually give it about 20 minutes to work. If you use a spray bottle, and saturate it well, it will work better for you.

Anubias don't like a lot of light or fertilizer in the water. Cut the lighting down to 6 hours at most and cut out the comp. Fish poop and regular water changes are enough for them. You are using to many chemicals which are causing the algae problem. Anubias don't do well with too much flourish, etc.

You can tuck the Anubias under a taller plant so it is shaded somewhat. I dose PPO pro ferts in my tanks with Anubias, and they are growing well. Your other plants do need ferts if your going a little higher light.
