Problems with Anubias Barterii going black/brown in sections


New Member

I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem I'm having with my Anubias Barterii. It's been growing really well but recently parts of the leaves are turning a black/brown colour. They aren't rotting or anything, it's more like they have been burnt in the middle. The actual leaves still appear to be strong but I can't scrape the black/brown section off (the hair like growth you can probably see in the photos can be scraped off). Has anyone experienced this? If anyone can shed any light on what is wrong that'd be most appreciated.

(I've also got an issue with a hairlike growth which I think is Algae but I'm posting this as a separate post).
