|Charrr89||Usually once I have a dying plant I emerse it right away. It takes a while to kick back up but it normally does it's work... Jus like my buce (similar to anubias) good luck.|

This is not a deficiency. It is almost certainly anubias disease which rots the rhizome and the base of the stems, then later attacks leaf tissue. It seems to spread by contact with infected parts of the plants. It is potentially caused by a slow moving plant eating worm (though this needs to be verified by microscopy). There are no known cures, but aggressive pruning of diseased areas can save plants if you catch it early. Be sure to clean the blade between each cut or you will infect healthy tissue and cut into the "healthy" areas around the infected parts or the disease is likely to keep spreading.
The only other ways anubias are damaged like this where the stem becomes mushy is by improper shipping (wet conditions for too long, or when temperature is too high or low during shipping, this promotes opportunistic fungal attacks).

|daboss808||It's seems your Anubias is in shock and because it's a slow growing plant more will die before you get growing results. Disturbing the roots and the plant itself causes it to go more in shock. I would try not to fuss with it too much and takes Bruce advice put lil more phosphate in your tank|

The light is a Marineland led double bright was thinking to upgrading to a better light no co2 was planning to use Flourish exel to help with algae.

Next to last photo appear's the rhizone was tore off of possibly another plant and this may play a part in the plant's health.
I use a razor blade to make clean cut's at an angle when I remove a portion to place somehwere else.
Also has been reported that some grow facilities spray their plant's which are nearly alway's grown with root's in water,leaves above water, to keep insect's from damaging the plant's. (leaves).
Doesn't matter that the plant's from store tank's are submerged ,for they likely were not before arriving.
This spraying of the plant's has been suspect in more than a few instances where anubia's just rotted away despite good CO2/fertilizer's.

|BruceF||I find anubias responds well to higher levels of phosphate.|

|daboss808||Algae could be your problem. Any use of co2? What about nutrients? What is your ppm status?|

I did some tank maintenance today and found another anubias melting. I removed both from the tank and removed all the melted parts from both plants.
I put both plants in another container with an air stone hopefully they recover the nana looks the best.
Also both anubias was bought at the same time about three weeks ago.
This one is from the petite
Regular anubias nana
The two anubias nana on the bottom are both healthy the one on the left has brown alagae.

Usually when that happens there are several reasons
Usually it's shock so what I do is instead of tying them to a log or rock I place them directly into the substrate. This helps produce root growth.
