    Hey I'm new to planted tanks. Some of my anubias nana have started to turn yellow, what could have caused it? It's in a relatively low light corner, and they came in small bunches (4-5 leaves) compared to the other healthy ones (10+ leaves). Thanks!

    Looks like a nutrient deficiency to me, yellow/dying leaves on opposite sides of the plant. But it could be lack if light. Are you using any fert?
    What size tank (height from substrate to light distance especially)?
    What light do you have? Time on?

    It's a 10G, I don't have a light on the tank - the light source is a nearby window, but not direct sunlight.

    I use a little bit of Seachem Flourish once a week.

    OK it probably is the lack of light then. An inexpensive led strip would probably do wonders. Run it for around 6-8hrs. daily.
