I guess I'll have to because I'm still at a loss for what to do with the java fern, haha. Those three-ish roots in the picture aren't really long enough to stick in the substrate. And like that whole black mass is kind of...hard and rough to the touch so I'm not really sure what's going on there. It seems just fine floating in the back of the tank though, so that's where it'll stay until I find a rock or something to tie it to.

The anubias is going in the "low light" corner of my tank though. I can't get anything else to grow there because the floaters block out too much light so why not?

Have you got any small rocks around? If so you can use fishing line or cotton and tie the java fern to that and let the rock drop to the bottom of the tank. This means it won't be buried in the substrate but it also won't be floating around, and the roots will eventually grow over the rock and down into the substrate.

I don't as of right now, but tying the java fern to a rock was exactly what I had planned on doing! (:
