From what i gathered to be successful ember tetra needs warm water 27C or 80F approx, soft acidic water Ph around 6.7 and some plants. I also read that to be successful its better to have a mesh box with a...

    Aquarium Base substrate (Coco Peat, Charcoal, Lava rocks)

    I have added the Tetra active substrate to the setup, added the plants, added co2 and currently misting twice per day. So far so good. I'm waiting for the roots to grow before adding water, i'm hoping that around 1 week i can completely submerge it.

    Aquarium Base substrate (Coco Peat, Charcoal, Lava rocks)

    Identifying plant damage

    You could also use some root tabs near the roots. From the picture above I feel like you are using regular gravel (l could be wrong here). I don't know about wisteria but Amazon Sword are heavy root feeders, having nutrients by their roots is definely a must , I learned this the hard way :v.

    20 Gallon Tank Giant Betta has lump under gills

    That seems to be like an infection of some sort under the scales. Have you tried the regular medication (API Melafix, Pimafix)? They contains untifungal properties which might help. Good luck and keep us updated.
