The plant in pic 4 isn't aquatic. The anubias seem to have algae on the leaves. How long is your photoperiod?

A co2 reactor would help. I have a 46 gal tank with a 20 gallon co2 reactor and my plants love it. Just a thought, There about $30 but worth it. You can get it at petsmart.

The large one behind the wood, with white colouration in it's leaves. When folks find out they generally put them in pots on the window sill.

Btw, if someone doesn't know what they are doing with CO2, then you can exacerbate the problems.

CO2 reactor, as in one that sits outside the aquarium? Wayyyyy over the top for a tank of this size.

Most of the plants are losing their colour which points towards lack of nutrients. Although it could be an early sign that they are lacking CO2. Plants that lack CO2 will begin to disintergrate.
Plant Deficiencies
Algae guide
Back to basics
Nutrients that plants need most - NPK. Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium.
Other nutrients needed in trace element concentrations, Boron, Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganes,e Molybdenum, Sulphur, Zinc. You'll find most of these in common plant ferts. In soft water areas you may need more calcium and magnesium.

I bought the same plant from Petco. It is NOT aquatic and will eventually rot in your tank. Mine is now planted and sitting on my windowsill.

There are a few varieties of plants that are sold as aquatic but really aren't. And yes, I potted it like a regular plant.
