Off to a good start.

You may want to read up on anubias in the aquarium. Planting of the rhizome is usually to be avoided. I think you may also want to think about the tank down the road a little. Think of what it might look like when grown in with regards to amount of space, plant color, leaf morphology, etc... Try to select different anubias species to increase the visual appeal.

Personally I think you have too many anubias currently for that tank long term. The appear to be all the same species so won't offer a lot of visual contrast. Small tanks are tricky to scape but can be done for sure.

So I did a water change and I put ALL of the anubias on the driftwood which was aggravating but it's done. Rhizomes aren't buried anymore. Click image for larger version

I think you are on the right track. Now to figure out the rest of the scape. I am not a fan of the white rocks but once more plants added you might change my take on that.

Any ideas on what you want to add. Needle leaf java fern would be one that you could add that would add a different leaf morphology and not demanding. Some crypt parva and petite nana would also be nice additions. M. quadrifolia would also slowly fill in. (A piece of black construction paper would also make stuff pop).

Changes

I really didn't think the scape was interesting at all. It was boring and the water turned dark yellow from the tannins released by the driftwood. It's boiling now and I drained the tank but left the substrate in. I decided that I am going for a very very deep slope a the beck to make it interesting and unlike what people may have seen. I think I'm just going to get rid of the white rocks cause they don't really look good but I can't wait to see how it turns out.
