Most flounders are brackish or saltwater fish, not freshwater. True freshwater ones are very difficult to obtain.

The eeny-weeny thing looks kind of like a baby crinkled java fern.
Judging by the damage and the pond snails, your plants are unhappy (maybe hungry?) and the snails are doing their job. Pond snails...

Do you have any sort of mini snail in there? Ramshorns do that sometimes.

Do you have anything that could be eating them?
The stem and tiny leaves look okay. Maybe give them a bit longer and see if they bounce back? Also, maybe plant them a bit more- the roots are...

Is there such a thing as a too-big water change?

I know small, frequent water changes are generally considered to be better, but is there any harm in doing, say, weekly 90% changes instead of weekly 50% changes? This is assuming that the water is...

Hatchetfish are usually safe with shrimp if you don't mind losing any that venture up to the surface. Assuming your cherries are smart enough to avoid the hatchets, losses should be minimal. ...

Gudgeons have very small mouths and aren't inclined to take on large food items.

Do you have a video? We could try to tell if it's in any discomfort. Sometimes it's evident in body language.

One has a fairly humped head, the other has a narrow head. The one with more red looks to be a male, the one with more yellow looks to be a female.
The male does appear to be showing off. He's...

Those are probably culls, but I'd say they're better quality than what you'd usually use as feeder shrimp. I'd say you might be able to get $1-$2 each for them, depending on what's available in the...

Most freshwater fish don't get pregnant, at least not as we think of pregnancy. The female produces a lot of eggs, which make her look fat as they grow to a proper size, then she lays the eggs and...

Any foreseeable issues with this container pond design?

First off, this will be indoors. I have no desire to contend with raccoons, neighborhood cats, carnivorous dragonfly larvae, and Texas heat.
I want to set up a container pond indoors, and I intend...

Upside-downs will snorfle the cherries right up. Amano shrimp may work, but be sure you get larger ones.

Looks like a guppy babu to me.
Use a turkey baster to put food right into their hiding spot, so they don't have to come out to eat. Be sure to put adult-sized food elsewhere, though, or the adults...

They aren't interested in plants most of the time, they're carnivorous. They may occasionally pick at a plant out of curiosity, but that's it.

Look into getting more if at all possible, they need a group or they'll gradually fade away.
In future, it may be best to not buy something you can't ID, no matter how cheap it is.
