Question Anubias is turning yellow

I have an anubias plant I got about a month ago in my 20long gallon tank. It is the only live plant. I don't know mcuh about my light, it is 17 watts, flourecent, and "full-spectrum".

The tips of one leaf, as well as most of another, have turned yellow. There are a few brown spots. Is this a lack of light?

The yellow leaf seems to be dying, and there is a rip in it. How do I trim it? Do I just cut it off, or is there a techniqe?

Thanks.

Just snip it off close to the stem. Do you have any new growth?

Make sure the rhizome isn't buried in the substrate.
