i would post that question in a more specific forum here on the plant topic. you'll probably get a lot more help over there.

How long are you running lights ?
Sunlight on the tank ?

I use timers on my lights and only run my lights 6 to 8 hours a day.

I also do water changes weekly.
I am using liquid ferts.

Anubias are slow growing and are prone to algae on the leaves. Depending on tank size, some form of algae eater could fix it.
Also they don't need much light at all.
