White Ribbon question

Hello, I am just now cycling my 5 gallon heated filtered tank and have 3 white ribbons in there. I have a 10 W flourecsent bulb.
My question is, is the cycling hard on these plants because one of them has a brown circle type spot on it?
I honestly did not do my research and bought it because I thought it was pretty.
The substrate is Eco-complete.

Unfortunately, white ribbons won't survive being full submerged. :( They'll rot eventually, and it looks like that's what you're seeing. Did you get it at Petco/Petsmart? They sell them as "aquarium" plants without a label saying they can't be submerged- misled many people, including me.

Thank you very much! I was wondering why my anubias was doing so well and these were looking so poorly!

And yes I did get it at PetSmart!!

I really like the anacharis. Do you think these would do good in my aquarium?
