I've had trouble with those gel packs. What I've done is put the struggling plant in an emersed set up and waited for it to grow back. Saved a nearly dead staurogyne repens that way. Had to kill a couple of other things before I learned that trick, sadly. The alternanthera can be grown emersed, if you feel like it is on its way out you could always switch it to another set up and see if you can revive it?
