Ok, keeping all suggestions above in mind, I have rearranged the plants in the tank. I bought a piece of driftwood and attached all three anubias to it with fishing line. I had to attach that ugly rock I found in the yard to it because the driftwood is in float mode. I also tried my best to position the swords to shade the anubias. It really didn't work, so I just put a small piece of cardboard above the anubias on the glass so that direct light will not hit them. They are still lit by plenty of ambient light, just not direct light.
As for the Rosefolia, I trimmed the top 5 or 6 inches of each stem and replanted them. I added ADA Multi Bottom root tabs to the Eco-Complete, but after a few days, roots still seem to be growing out of the stems. Should I just trim them as they grow?
As for the java fern, I put a few pieces of the baby fern on the driftwood. I cleaned up the main plant and removed all of the baby ferns from the leaves and rubbed off the brown algae. This time around, I just let the java fern sit on top of the gravel instead of planting it in the gravel. The driftwood is holding it in place for now, as I am hoping that some of the roots will grab some of the gravel over time.
The stargrass and dwarf tears are growing like crazy. I think its because of the ADA Multi Bottoms root tabs.
Some sort of white ghostly algae is growing on the diftwood, but I think the Corys are eating it. Hopefully it is safe.
How about flourish tabs? That is what I use in my tank!!!
Flourish excel is a source of CO2.
My mistake, I meant to say that I was using Seachem Flourish, not Excel. I have a DIY for CO2 hooked up. I could not find Flourish tabs, but a local store had ADA Multi Bottoms.
how many hours of light? how close to the tank?
I changed the timer of the light to have 2 hours of moonlight, 7 hours of regular light, followed by 1 more hour of moonlight. I reduced the amount of regular light by 3 hours. The light is sitting maybe an inch or two above the top of the tank.
Here is the tank after the changes:
