75 Gallons Planted Tank

75 gallons planted tank (mostly live plants and fish) - So I\'m new to planted aquariums, got this aquarium on the cheap, and went for it. I kept fish when I was younger, but I\'m just now getting back into the hobby. the first pic was a couple weeks ago, and the second was a couple days ago. The hornwort and moneywart are doing great, but the anubias looks like kinda weak. I did fertilizer with osmocote root tabs, but beyond that, pretty unsure what to do the liven it up. Suggestions?
