I have been growing all sorts of plants in my 29 gallon. I have had a bit of trouble getting some plants to stay red but I have solved that through changing up my fert dosing.

Anyway, I just can't get this plant to grow nicely. My 29 used to be low light and my anubias would grow big but always lack color. It would be light green. Trust me, it grew, I had one small one that I ended up deviding into maybe 5 large ones in a few months.

Now I have 108 watts over my 29. Everything is thriving and good...except my 2 anubias. The leaves turn yellow and are sort of "crispy", like terriestrial leaves in the fall. Not all, just a few but it is ugly. Some leaves have the proper color, most are a lighter green. Maybe 2 leaves are orangish and a bit transparent. This is off two which have probably 15 leaves total, only half look right.


Anyway, I just don't get it. I have them growing on wood, not burried in the substrate, all my other plants look great, I just can't figure it out.

sounds like a CO2 & nutrients issue.
The CO2 is not distributed to the anubias perhaps.

CO2 is not the same level throughout the tank.
