I think I maybe be a bit late but has the tank cycled? Also, what type of anubias is it? I would put it near the front on the ground for bottom cover and the el nino fern should be placed near the middle or back of the tank... Also, you should get some floating plants due to the fact that bettas like top cover because they mostly stay towards the mid and top sections of the tank

Hello there :)
Betta does prefer low water parameters such as :
pH 6 to 7
hardness (GH) below 8
alkalinity below 6
and of course zero ammonia, zero nitrites and zero nitrates.

For example, here are the kind of tanks a Betta loves to live in :
