I know exactly how you feel bannlow. I joined the site after you, but have been on it reading almost constantly since then. I've only just recently started feeling like I can help a few people in return for all the help I've found. If you ever feel the need feel free to PM me with questions too.

The lucky bamboo plant (Dracaena sanderiana) pet stores sell is not aquatic plant, so if you're using it, make sure you don't fully submerge it. Most of the plant should be out of the water. Otherwise, it's going to eventually die, rot, and mess up your water.

Also, in your avatar, the spiky grass-like plant in the left corner? It looks like it could be mondo grass, which is not truly aquatic either. A lot of pet stores sell terrestrial plants as water plants. They'll last a while, but eventually, they'll deteriorate. If you gotten any, that could be why they are dying. That could also be part of the problem. Make sure to be careful when you by plants, especially from chain stores.

Some nonaquatic and semi-aquatic plants commonly sold as aquatic plants:

Aluminum plant
Arrowhead
Aqua fern
Bichetii grass
Borneo sword
Cherry hedge
Brazilian sword
Fountain plant
Lucky bamboo
Malayan swordplant
Mondo grass
Neanthebella palm
Nerve plant
Peacock fern
Pineapple plant
Purple waffle
Ribbon plant
Scarlet hygro
Sweetflag
Umbrella plant
