    I really like this plant... I would hate to have to take it out. Anyways, I have no idea what it is, but if otos or BN plecos eat it, I'm fine.

    Hopefully it isn't fast spreading... Should I lower the amount of lighting per day?

    Hard to see but sounds like black beard algae. Nothing eats it, sometimes a true sae will depending on the type but ottos and plecos wont touch it most of the time. It's some nasty stuff that can spread like a weed, id take the plant out and scrub it off. If that wont work pull the leaves that are affected, it looks like there are young ones that are clean in the picture.

    I tried, but this stuff is pretty hard, considering that I nearly tore a leaf off trying to remove it. I currently have it removed from the tank. Will it grow back once I remove it all? I doubt just scrubbing it off will work...
    This was a $14 plant, and I don't want it to go to waste...

    Edit:
    I'm thinking of cutting off the affected ones, only 40% of them are affected. Will the parts that I cut off grow back? Or will I just have to wait for more to grow regularly?

    With Anubias once a leaf gets damaged it will never come back in my experience, kinda like swords. Just pull the affected stalks off and new ones will come in. It's always a good idea to pull the older leaves off whenever you introduce a new plant to your tank anyway.

    Edit: And $14? It's a nice Anubias but damn lol. You need to head over to the for sale section of plantedtank, it will open your eyes to what this stuff actually costs lol.

    Do I pull it off from the very bottom? Or cut it off... Will this matter?

    I usually cut mine off as low as possible without getting the base.

    It does look like the beginning of beard algae, do not handle the plant too much in your tank as this stuff will spread because of spores. Handle with care. There is good info on this in the algae section by Dave66. It's a quick read.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    I'm going to remove as much as I can. Will 50%+ water changes and lowering lighting help to prevent the surviving amount from spreading?
