this could be because of low flow and macro deficiency.

Is it happening to all the plants in the tank or only the anubias?

Maybe direct exposure to bright light.
Direct light to my anubias led to browning and melting of leaves and they did better when planted at a distance from light.

Try some Ramshorn snails, they really cleaned up Anubias for me once.

Yes, it is happening with all plants mostly.

Could temperature is one of the reason. It is 30 degree.

I am not an expert but I would suggest you to increase flow in the tank along with Co2.
In case you are not using co2, run air through the internal filter.
It will help. Also increase filteration.
You also need to post more details of your tank for people to be able to help you better.
Warm regards

Frequent water changes will also help

First of all check the fluctuation in temperature and presence of silicates, nitrates in water.

Remove the water around 95% and apply Hydrogen paraoxide over the leaves. All of the algae will burn out in 5 minutes. Fill again with water and repeat the process after three days.
