Looks very good. Great job

The only thing I might add is some floating plants like frogbit, water lettuce, or duckweed. This is because anubias especially don't really like bright direct light so they may need a little shading, especially being so close to the light.

I'm not sure? They all seem to be doing good so far, and the anubias that i didn't just get have grown new leaves, maybe it's because I have pretty much all of the plants raised up closer to the surface and not at the very bottom of the tank?

Duckweed does not need fertilizer, but be warned, that stuff spreads EASILY and QUICKLY. It looks neat, though one little plant can turn into twenty in a few days. If you have other tanks and accidentally get just one in another one, you will have a colony. But it does look really neat!
