The question of stern anchor is no different to that of primary, with the slight difference that maybe it doesn't have to be so good at dealing with force veers / reversals etc. That said, if you need to get a new anchor, then get something so you have at least one decent pick onboard. Relegate the existing Delta to the stern and replace it as primary.
If you're allowing the boat to hang off the stern anchor, or even side winds, then you can't undersize it.
If you don't trust the Fortress, which you are right not to, sell it and fund this excercise with it. They are worth a bit.
