| | 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?
