I think it's dying, but as you can see there are a few bright green leaves growing. So I don't know for sure what to do????

I'm not an expert, by any means, I'm closer to a rank amateur, but I'd venture that your anacharis does not have enough nutrients.

Do you use any fertiliser?

What lights do you have?

If I remember correctly, Anachris are seasonal plants that die off in the winter, so that may be what you're seeing; also, I believe they are cold-water plants, not tropical, so the really don't do well in heated aquaria.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
