Have tried Seachem flourish tabs? You just push one into the substrate next to the plant. My anubias wasn't growing at all when my other plants where doing really well. I bought some of those root tabs and within a week my anubias nana almost doubled in size and it has been getting new leaf growth regularly..I've even had to trim it a bit already.

Do you know if it is okay/necessary to use root tabs in addition to liquid ferts?

I really don't see what it would hurt..Though I will say I have never ad much luck with liquid fert. Anubias is a heavy root feeder so it will get more benefit from a tab or some sort of solid fert in the substrate than it would with a liquid. CO2 injection is also very beneficial{for all plants, really}. From my understanding Anubias nana grows best in warm water and high light environments. I use a power-glo T8 bulb and it provides more than enough light for all my plants and makes my fish's color really "pop"...I run my light anywhere from 10-14 hrs a day.
