Did your light get stronger or did you put it too close to the light? Anubias is a low light plants. I got the same problem and i fixed it by positioning it to a shady place.

I know that anubias turns yellow because of too much light.

i have black water, can barely see anything inside if few feet away from the tank. I dont think i have too much light, actually the one on the top (first picture) of the driftwood is the closet to the light which is more green.
