It may just be the photo colours, but the leaves look a bit on the yellowing side. If this is actual, it is caused by too bright overhead light, which wold likely have been in the store since you just got them. Anubias, like Java Fern and Java Moss, is a true shade plant, so when you attach it to rock or wood, place it in a shady location, not under the direct overhead light. When Anubias is overshadowed by larger plants, or under floating plants, it will do better. Algae (brush algae especially) will also be less likely to attach, something that often occurs in direct lighting.
I also see a leaf of a Java Fern to the right of the Anubias, this also should not be buried, at least the rhizome (the thick "stem" on both species from which leaves and true roots will grow) should not be buried. It will be OK if the rhizome is above the substrate, attached to wood/rock or not doesn't matter, but that is the easiest way of securing it to something.
