Anubias failing!

My anubias are going south due to the new leaves being nipped upon spiking... I'm guessing it's my barbs, but can't be sure. I didn't see issues before they got larger. I've also introduced a small pleco in the past few months, but he's well fed. Ideas? I would be willing to do some rigging around them like a deer cage around a tree. Not sure of the best way, but I actually just got some ideas myself!

Is it planted or tied to driftwood?

Is there too much light?

Are you fertilising?

It's hard for me to imagine a healthy anubias being nibbled... Something is probably making it soft.

Driftwood

There's enough light to keep some of the plants looking good, but the plants near the bottom of the tank grow slowly.

Yes, flourish comprehensive.

The tiny little new leaves are being ripped away as spikes before they even open. I don't think it would take much to accomplish this, since i could snap it with a finger nail.
