As jeaniel said maybe your plants need some time to mature again pull your anubia out of the gravel at least the rizome your anacharis you can let them float for a while so they can grow roots if they're melting could be a light issue make sure they are getting enough. plants you can add as much as you want they actually look good

Some easy care plants could be java moss, java fern, bacopa, cambomba, amazon sword, melon sword, Lily and there's more on my own experience those are the easiest I've found and still having some in my tanks :)

Unfortunately moving it didn't seem to help much. It looks a lot worse than the last picture, yet it's still growing bright green tops? One ended up being kicked up and is now floating. I'm leaving it there to see how it'll do up there. I'm not sure I like it floating, but a few tadpoles like hanging onto it.

I purchased another plant (of which I'm still searching the name) and I have it in the old spot of the Egeria densa and it's doing great there. So that one and my anubias are really great. My anubias is starting to grow a bunch of little leaves. (I did push the rocks off of the rizome. It was only under a layer of rocks but as a precaution I did so.) I also have 3 oto's who do a great job keep the algae off of it.

So, I'm hoping it was just bad luck, rather than something I did. xP I purchased Flourish Supplement at the suggestion of the pet store. I've only used it once so far but maybe it'll help too.

I'll keep an eye out for those plants you mentioned, Carlos. :)

E. densa is kind of a hit or miss plant. I can never get it to survive longer than a couple of weeks.
