No, I said the sword plant sounds OK from your description, no worry there. The Anubias is another matter.
But yes, any plant can lose existing leaves if the environment changes. It depends upon the specifics. I have had plants do this, while at other times the same plant species do not. There is so much to factor in.
If you are using Flourish Comprehensive, I really would not add any other products that duplicate some of the nutrients in Flourish. As for once or twice a week, once a week should be sufficient for Anubias, though possibly not for swords. But again, we need to consider other sources of nutrients.
GH you said was 11, I had assumed 11 dGH...is this correct? Or is it 11 ppm?
