Anubias Nana ( Our Best Selling Anubias Plant)
Anubias Nana s a tough plant and can perhaps even be kept with cichlids without being eaten. (though I haven't kept cichlids with it in a long time so I am not saying that your fish won't destroy it) There are two things about Anubias Nana that you have to keep in mind when putting it in your aquarium. The first rule with Anubias of any kind is that it is very sensitive to temperature shock. Acclimate the plant like you would a fish.
The second thing about Anubias is that you want to tie it to a rock or drift wood and NOT put the plant down in the gravel of your tank. ( I let my Anubia find its own way down to the gravel, but don't put it there on its own.) You’ll get about 7 leaves on each piece. (Grown under water not above like most places…less shock)
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Anubias Nana is a 1.5 The only reason it is not a 1 is because it doesn't like soft water.
Can handle super low lighting, grows faster
NOTE: Anubias likes a bit of water flow as it is a slow grower and this will keep stuff off of its leaves.
Where to Plant:
Tie it to some driftwood or to a rock. (Ask us for FREE wife to go in with your order.) Again- Don't bury it in the gravel :)
A nice little portion with good color. I attach all my Anubis to driftwood and let it grow. A very good starter plant that is a slow grower.
Placed an order for some Anubias because I haven't had the opportunity to try them in my tanks. They looked great and are currently adjusting to my 7 gallon's water. I ordered some Azolla upon Dustin's recommendation to combat algae. There was plenty to share in my 20tall. I also ordered some growth juice but sadly this item wasn't available. The awesomeness, that is Dustin's Fish Tanks, sent some additional stemmed plants (limnophilia or ludwigua) as a courtesy for the slight delay in shipping. THANKS!!!
Next time I plan to request expedited shipping for the sake of the plants. Texas is heating up and aquatic plants no likey. Overall, I'm very happy with the order and hope these plants take, at least this tank, to the next level. Thanks again DFT!
I placed an order of a few plants, upon unboxing I saw I didnt get a regular anubias I was given a petite! Which was awesome as hell because I had a previous anubias and the petite contrasted it beautifully on my driftwood setup!
As usual, thenplant was vibrant, healthy, great roots and took to the tank immediately!
Nice size, great condition with large roots.
