Dirk  asked, "What sort of algae likes to grow on Anubias and looks 
like 5 o'clock shadow?"
Sounds like black brush algae, a type of red algae.  My SAEs much prefer 
the softer versions of red algae and only nibble on this kind occasionally. 
In my tank this form is caused by high phosphate levels.
