Default Anubias Sp. Leaves Yellowing, Getting Holes After Rescaping.

About a week ago I changed the aquascaping of my tank completely. Changed from gravel to flourite black, and added some new plants.

My Anubias, which I have had for about 10 months with no prior problems, was too big to be fully submerged in any containers I have, so I kept the roots fully submerged and misted the leaves with water every half hour. I kept it out of the water for way too long, about 4-5 hours, and the leaves began to curl at the edges.

After adding it back to my new tank, the leaves began to uncurl, but within the next day or so they began to yellow a bit and develop holes in the leaves as seen in the picture. I have been adding Flourish since the rescaping and I never had problems with this is my previous set up so I don't think it is nutrient related. It does have a new leaf developing, but it's too early to tell the quality of that leaf.

Any ideas about what's going on?

Should I prune the dead leaves? If so, how vicious should I be about it?

Nice A bateri. Yeah, prune damaged leaves. They’re not going to heal and they’ll leak nutrients. I’d cut at the base of the stem, above the rhizome.

Thanks @mistergreen . Should I trim all leaves that have any damage at all? Or just on those with extensive damage? As time goes on, it seems some smaller holes are showing up in other leaves. Initially I was worried it may be a disease spreading but I'm guessing it could have just taken longer for the dried tissues to die in those less affected leaves?

For now trim the most extensive damage. You can trim the others later as new leaves grow in.

ps. You can store aquatic plants in a plastic bag for days without drying.

Thanks for the help. Sad stuff, it had been growing so well, I hate that I've damaged it.

On another note do you know how to respond to a specific comment and how to receive notifications? This is my first day here. Thanks.
