omg what's wrong with my' nana?!


lol sorry for the melodrama... but seriously, what's up with it? Aren't these darned things supposed to be next to immortal? Why the yellow leaves? It was like this hwen I got it at a petstore and it's still that way.. what causes this?

Btw my' tank is new, maybe two weeks old now, using amazonia substrate and just started daily dosing api co2 booster and seachem flourish comprehensive about a week ago. new leaves have been since i gotten this plant starting to unfurl, maybe one or two but the yellowy leaves haven't turned back green.it's possible it's gotten worse since but I haven't really been observing to know any differences...

Anywho, if you've got any ideas please help!

The yellow leaves are dieing. Peel them off. The new leaves look decent.

Yellow leaves do not recover and "heal" itself. They will either stay in the same shape or slowly start to die off and rot.

Well no, the anubias is tied to a lavarock which is just sitting on the black amazonia substrate.

Peel off or cut off the older leaves. They could be yellow for many different reasons anything from poor handling during shipping to poor handling at your LFS. It also may be that the plant has gone from one tank to another to another. The new leaves that grow in will be fine as they are now leaves acclimated to your tank parameters. Just give it some time.
