Anacharis is a floating plant.
Anubias have a Rhizome which looks like a stem running across the bottom of the leaves and this part is not supposed to be planted, but only the roots which hang down from it. People often tie these to rocks/wood for this reason.
I have used bulbs from 3100K to 18,000K with mostly the same results but the 3100K was a red/blue enhansed plant bulb by GE.
Ludwigia grow very slowly until they reach the top or close to it. They also get white "roots" coming from the sides. Sometimes I trim these at least from the middle of the plant to the top. I have heard they are mostly for stability.
If the Crypts are Petco's they will do well. If Parva you might not have enough light for them. If Petchii you do have enough. They change from above the water grown plants rather quickly, but then grow very slowly after that. Those leaves look like the shape of leaves grown above the water.
The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
