My anubias "coffefolia" seems to have gone downhill some since I transplanted it from a rock to a piece of driftwood about a week ago. Two or three of its 12-15 leaves have started to disintegrate between the veins (leaving a "skeleton") within the last 24 hours. It does seem like it's starting to attach its roots to the new location, and looks good and healthy except for this and some yellow spots that were on these same leaves shortly before they disintegrated. The leaves that it happened to were all fairly old leaves.

Is this potassium deficiency? I've noticed in the last week that nitrates are not being taken up by the tank as quickly as they had been, if that's another clue (although that could be just because I beat back the cabomba).

Or is this simply some transplant shock and nothing to worry about?

Sometimes moving plants can stress them and cause leaves to die off. I would cut all the leaves off that are dieing and new leaves should take their place. If you do not see improvement in a week or two then I would lean toward a nutrient deficiency.
