Anubias Nana turning brown

I recently bought an A. nana plant from an LBS. The LBS had all their plants under low light conditions. It's been in my tank about 2 weeks under 2.25 wpg lighting w/o much shade. The leaves are turning brown (so are the one on my crypt. lutea, but i'm not as worried about that). My other plants: cabomba, R. indica, ludwigia replens, java fern, and baby tears are all kicking butt. are the leaves burning, or is this okay under the stronger lighting conditions?

the leaves should not be burning, i keep mine in 3.5 wpg and it grows very nicely... are you burying the rhizome in the gravel?

Should anubias rhizomes be buried or left in the water column?

you should NEVER bury their rhizome, it will rot and kill the plant. Keep it about 1/2 to an inch above the gravel, so you can see some roots, and it'll show you love
