So my anubias nana just started to develop brown spots. Not diatoms or algae but actually on the leaf. The rhizome is between two pieces of driftwood, but has flowing water around it. Could it be just because the rhizome is not getting direct light? I've read that anubias can grow without receiving direct light to the rhizome, but grew slower. I also have my lights on for about 10-11 hours a day. Could it be too much light? Burn? I'm going to reduce lights to 8 hours starting tomorrow.

I do add ferts so I don't think its a deficiency, as it did just fine before I moved it around in the tank without ferts.

Posting a picture would help.

How is the rhizome? Is it mushing? Some of my rhizomes don't get any light and they are fine.

What do you mean by mushing?

Here is a picture. You can barely see the spots. They actually look a little more yellow than brown.

Also, I have an anubias hastofilia that is doing just fine in the tank.

It's a few of the top leaves, but the highest leaf is the worst. It's also the oldest leaf.

Ok, I have the option of moving the light closest too it over a little bit, so I can do that.
