I recently got a dwarf anubias nana attached to a piece of river rock. It was small, so I put it in my little fry tank. It is a African cichid fry tank, with some other plants Java fern, Java moss, ans corkscrew vallis. It also has a small quality of floating Ricca. All the other are florishing and taked root with no ill-effects, but the anubias has a few leaves that have turned brown and hardly taked root. What do you think is the problem? I have a small aquarium plant light turned on for 10~12 hours a day, and no Co2 injection or anything else, just the hard, alkaline water of a Rift Lake tank. I am very curoius:confused:

I have several anubias nana 'petite' growing well in a 5.5 gallon with 11 watts for over a year with fish poop as the only ferts, no CO2, and kH of 8 degrees.

Did you plant it, if so is the rhizome buried? Otherwise I usually treat it like a plastic plant and it works for me. YMMV
Even if the leaves die, and fall off. Keep the rhizome. It may still sprout more leaves.
