    Do you have something that would eat your leaves, because i see physical damage to the leaf and not nutrient deficencys.

    Let me intro on the fishes I have
    2 black mollies
    2 cory
    7 tetra
    2 lily
    5 guppies
    1 Chinese algae eater
    1 nerite snail
    About 20 cherry shrimps (maybe some died)

    Not sure which of above will cause this, but I don't see any guys biting the nana leaves.

    What i'm guessing happened is the chinese algae eater took a liking to the leaf. The leaf could of been weakened also giving the algae eater a better start on it.

    Is it an old leaf of a new one? How long has the anubias been in the tank? Any other plants in the tank?

    Be careful with the Chinese algae eater, reputation for becoming nasty as they grow.

    IME occasionally when a leaf gets an issue (the tip of that leaf looks like an old issue), snails in the tank swoop in to clean up the deteriorating leaf. It's the only time my snails will eat plants, when there is a problem with them.
