Fertilizer burn on anubias?

I started a emersed set up and put a bunch of anubias in it. The new leafs on the plants look great but some of the older leaves are turning yellow at the tips and the yellow has spread.

I had the anubias in a aquarium and I added some ferts. I almost killed the plants off. They started developing holes in the leaves and some leafs melted away.

I then tranfered them to a emeresed set up. I can't tell if I burned the plants again in the emersed or if its from being in the aquairum.

If I had burned them a second time in the emersed set up wouldn't the new leafs had been impacted also? Because I'm getting great new growth but a lot of the older leafs are dying.
