I know that this is going to sound silly but are you sure that what you are observing are not blooms which are not opened.

I have seen these many times on my anubias.
They will partially open but never go into a bloom.
All of my blooms have died after several weeks and I removed them from the tank.

What color are the leaves? anubis is one of the hardiest plants so you have to try and kill them.

I'm in agreement with Jones. They could be flowers.

no there certainly leaves the rib seems to curve off to one side like one side of the leaf is growing slower than the other they are also very light green. my local aqatic dealer says fertilise it and promply tried to flog me some, it has been fertilised once, there are cryps growing all around its base could they be stealing its nutriets? i have a literal forest of crypts

From the tenure of your posts I believe that the anubias are planted but you did not indicate the composition of your substrate.
Also from the above quote I believe that you placed tab fertilizer at the bottom of the anubias.
IMHO I would dose with Flourish at twice the recommended rate for two weeks and observe the outcome.

I was told that you should never plant the rhizome of the plant into the substrate, otherwise it will start to rot. The plants actually prefer to be tied to a rock or driftwood, is what I have heard, and I did that with mine and it looks great.

SG:

Most of mine are also tied to rocks and wood but I do have one which is planted.

The planted one is doing as well as the "tied ones" but when I planted it I "bearly" placed the roots in the substrate.

You may be having trouble googling for it due to the misspelling.
