Plant Mistake?

I had a lot of anacharis that was growing and multiplying very well in my tank. I decided to move a bunch of it over in front of my heater to shield it from view. A week or 2 later I noticed that a lot of it had turned mushy and was loosing most of it's leaves. The parts that were waving in the water were fine, but the bottoms that were planted and thus constrained to be close to the heater were not. Is it a common issue to have too much heat kill off otherwise healthy anacharis?

I have heard that Anachris prefers colder water, but I have just recently planted some, so I don't have any real experience. I look forward to other responses.

It may be the heater, or it may just be that the bottoms aren't getting enough light. If the stems rot off, I would supect the heater.

Could this possibly be the problem? Quote taken from Plant Geeks.

***Special note*** This plant seems to be sensitive to Flourish Excel, to the point it "melts" completely off if given enough. It is also sensitive to bleach dips.

I haven't used Flourish Excel. I only used the aquariumplants.com substrate. On Tuesday, I added their fertilizer pellets, but the damage was already done, so that can't be related, but I'm hoping it will help all the plants in the tank thrive.
