I would actually recommend removing the pots and the rock wool too. They
function well when these plants are cultivated in hydroponic conditions and
they protect the root systems when they are being shipped around but I think
the plants do better without them in the aquarium. Also you might want to
check some of the new light fixtures using compact fluorescent bulbs which
are brighter and some of these are great for smaller plant tanks. The
special wavelength bulbs sold for planted aquaria (and live reef marine
tanks) do make a different as well. I understand the fish dilemma and it was
for similar reasons that I didn't have them for quite a while and why I have
one of the simplest to keep fish now.
