Hello. Ok so I decided to add a plant to my 23 fluval vista aquarium. I did some research and took the advice of my lfs and got Anubis barteri. When I got it the leaves and roots looked good leaves where nice and dark green and straight. The second day I noticed the leaves started to curl a lil didn’t think nothing if it and now a week later they are really curled. Just now got some Seachem flourish and added the correct dosage. Is there anything I did wrong or I can do to help it. Also my light is what came with the tank a 8000k 800 lumen led.

Seems like you planted it on your substrate. Anubias can't be planted, they need to be tied down to driftwood or rock or glued. Rhizomes needs to be exposed otherwise they will rot

The OP does not have the rhizome under the substrate, meaning the plant is fine.

I “planted” it like the clerk said should I change the way it’s planted.
