Very nice, but the anubias will rot or the rhizome will if the plant is not placed on some driftwood, and when you do the roots will attach itself to the wood

They don't necessarily need to be on driftwood. They can be attached to rocks or anything else in your tank or even be put in the substrate. The key when doing that is to bury the roots, but not the rhizome.

The plants look good to me.

That's not a goldfish in a 10g, is it?
