Check the rhizome and see if its firm. Sometimes plants will lose a couple of leaves when first put in a different tank. As long as the rhizome is firm your ok.

Question for chatony. What is the pH of your water? When plants turn yellow, pH is one of the things to look at.
Question for people who have raised aquarium plants. Does driftwood provide iron? Iron loss is another thing to look at.

sirdarksol-driftwood does not add iron. Very few aquatic plants are influenced by the ph of the water. anubias is not a heavy feeder so I don't think iron deprivation is a problem.
Chatony- how long have you had it?

you probably have too much light on it without enough nutrients and co2. it wouldnt be pH - anubias is extremely hardy. its a slow grower, and gets strained when under too much light.
