In your first picture, it look as if you amazon sword plant is buried to far down... Sometimes they start a root rot thing an nothing can be done to stop it, it's irreversable, maybe pull it up a little so it isn't burried as much.

Your tank is looking great...
The roots will grow rapidly on that Sword and anchor it down... no need to pull it up simply wipe away top layers of substrate as it matures

Aha...that makes sense! A plant that big would have to be anchored down in some way, shape, or form. Ok, I get it now....

Some of the outer leaves on the sword are turning brown and some others are turning to skeleton leaves......think its just the plant ajusting to my water or the plant dying?.......i dont think snails are eating the leaves because any snail i see i go directly to it and take it out of the tank.......only algae eaters i have are otto's

That is a very large sword...
the more leaves the more nutrients. Try a plant spike near roots, that helps mine out
