1. Remove the whole plant from tank and give it a nice hydrogen peroxide bath - it is for oxygen- Hydrogen peroxide you will get from chemist 1 liter bottle
2. Wash the plant in fresh clean water again
3. cut all the dying leaves, and be sure new onse will come- we are always. afraid of cutting bad leaves for the fear that new onse will come very late, not necessarily it happens always
4. put the plant back in the tank
5. If possible check your nitrate levels. The plant may be getting very low nitrogen, because you don't have any fish in your tank I think, so no waste, so no nitrogen cycle.
6. Go to your local LFS and ask for Flourish Excel- or buy it from the net
7. Dose 1 cap full on alternate day.
8. Keep CO2 running in good quantity
9. Inorder to bring nitrogen to your tank go to an LFS and cycle you filter sponge in a fish populated tank (press your filter sponge in fish tank) and add it to your filter. This should help a little.
After a week you should see new growth. I will post my anubias picture tomorrow to show the difference.

i had removed everything from the aquarium before re-scaping it except the soil. so there is fish waste in the soil. and i have added the fishes and shrimps back in the tank. (the picture was taken right after filling the water before leaving the fishes back)
am using the same external filter which i was using before in this tank.
and i have cut mostly of the old or damaged leaves , didnt want to cut too much cos the plant does not look that great with less leaves
may i know why give it a nice hydrogen peroxide bath?
and whats the actual use of Flourish Excel?
sorry , if am bothering you asking so many question,because i have never used Flourish Excel or hydrogen peroxide.

Anubias do not like to be moved too much, they take a long time to adapt to conditions.
Even in a low light planted with low co2 some amount of fertilization is needed.
Do not move the plant too much, let it stabilize, and fertilize on a monthly basis in this tank.
Look out for ideas for fertilizer mix in fertilizer section.
