    Hi,

    I have two questions.

    1. Is the plant in the attached photo an Anubias?
    2. Can you see the leaf which has three small holes on it. Should I cut the leaf off immediately or keep it as is?

    thanks

    Do you have this anubias growing underwater? A reason to remove the leaf with the holes would be to prevent it from attracting algae, if it is growing underwater.

    Thanks for your confirmation.

    I considered whether I should remove it as I read that when a leaf starts turning yellow you should cut it off to give strength to the other leaves coming up.

    Yes its growing underwater.
