The unhealthy looking ones appearbto beba sword of some kind. Their also appears to be an anubias (the dark green one) and some crypts. The crypts and anubias seem healthy so you appear to have them cared for well enough. I am not sure what is wrong with the swords but I would guess not enough light.

Can an admin move this over to the planted section please

You need to add root tabs to the swords and crypts as they are heavy root feeders. The dark green plant on the last picture on the left side shows signs of nutrient deficiencies. While they are slow growers they still need nutrients. I suggest getting some Seachem Flourish Comprehensive and use it weekly after WC's.

Also using a liquid carbon daily, such as Excel, will help plants.
