Java fern making babies with brown fuzzy roots

So my Java fern is notorious for producing babys. My only concern is the roots that come off the plantlet are brown and often fuzzy. At this point, the roots are so long, and the plant looks mature enough, so should I just go ahead and pick it off and stick it on some dry wood?
Here are some pics below

Another question, my Anubis looks not so hot. And any suggestions as to what could be wrong would also be greatly appreciated. I have a hunch it has to do with water hardiness and acidity, maybe too much or too little fertilizer? Idk please help

What are you using for fertilizer and at what rate?

Current Setups:

-20H Saltwater Reef with 2 perc. clownfish (corals coming soon)

-10 gallon shallow freshwater pond with 5 "Triple Red" Apistogramma cacatuoides, 4 Panda cory cats, 1 clown pleco. 1 big snail and a mess of plants.

-5 gallon cube cycling with a half-moon betta and male "Triple Red" Apistogramma cacatuoides

In real life I brew beer and mess around with yeast and hop genetics

I've read other posts where people have had trouble with the larger Anubias. It may just be hungry for nutrients, or the larger ones may just not be suitable for long-term underwater growth (without really being pampered).

For your Java Fern babies, they still look a bit small; I'd leave them for a bit longer
