They are killer!

Anubias Congensis is one of the tallest blade-like species of Anubias. With a beautiful dark lime green color and thick sword like leaves, Anubias Congensis is an outstanding plant for the mid or back ground of your tank. This may very well be the plant you’ve been lacking for the perfect tank. Standing taller than Anubias Minima, Congensis can reach heights of twelve to fourteen inches in a well lit tank. If your tank is not lit to well, that’s not a problem; Congensis will keep shorter leaves and grow slower in a dimmer tank. That being said beginners to experts can find success with this killer Anubias species. Each leaf that is produced points to the top of the tank and stays vertical at all times. Other Anubias species with blade-like leaves, such as Minima or Frazeri, usually keep the flat surface towards the light, Congensis will not. If you want a plant to fill in a dark spot in the tank or if you’re looking for a splash of brighter green in the tank, Congensis will make a great addition. Like other variants, Congensis can handle an array of water parameters; from slightly brackish with a high ph to softer water with ph of 7.0. Personally I have found that the roots of Congenis are thicker than most other Anubias species I have kept, which makes it more difficult to move them around the tank than a smaller plant like Nana. Once planted though, you will not be disappointed. No matter the lighting, substrate, or your level of knowledge in the aquarium hobby, Anubias Congensis is an easy to keep, hardy plant. I can't always get these different species of Anubias, if you are thinking about getting some kind of different Anubias, DO IT, cause I can't promise when I'll have them in stock again. Remember when planting Anubias to only plant the roots! Do not ever cover the rhizome of the plant!!!

Love these!

Made the mistake of ordering from “someone else” once and won’t do that again. Love these slow growers. We’re delivered on time and in great shape, and appreciate Dustin throwing in a little extra on the order!

Won't grow

I have grown show quality Anubias of 5 species for several years. Wanted to try this plant to diversify to taller anubias with better resiliency to cichlids as advertised. Plants looked fine when received but after 7 or 8 months the only thing that grows is the roots, in spite of dosing and trying with and without CO2. Foliage is 1/3 the size of when I received them


ANUBIAS CONGENSIS arrived in a very timely manner & was packed wonderfully. The plant was healthy & I appreciate the included information paper. Very pleased 1st time customer & will be adding more plants to my axolotl’s tank!

I also emailed questions regarding plants for my axolotl & received good feedback/advice.


Great plants, arrived well packed and in good condition.


Package arrived earlier then originally stated which was very fast. The packaging was amazing. And the plants baby Jesus himself must have picked these plants from the garden of eve. Love them so much! Thank you!
