If you have it buried in the substrate that might be killing it. It needs to be attached to rock or wood.

3 goldfish and a pleco in a 6.5 gallon?!?! That is extremely overstocked!

I have it super glued to a rock and it is above the substrate.
I'm working on getting a 29 gal. I got these as a gift so hopefully soon I will be able to upgrade

They look about the the same about 90%is green with black spots
10%black spots is kinda a worry. Sometimes java fern does not do well to excessive amounts of super glue and can 'die back'. Did you only use a little glue?

I only put one drop on the rock and held it in place. Could be possible that when I was attaching the other pieces that it flowed to the others

Regardless, i would just cut off the problem leaves and fingers crossed that it grows in healthy. I noticed that java fern can be a bit finicky at times, and take a while to adapt.
