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!!!

I got two Anubias congensis and a bundle of hornwort, just to try Dustin’s out. The plants arrived very securely packaged and wet and healthy. I’d read reviews that said they got more than their money’s worth, but I wasn’t prepared for what I received.

For twice the money, I got 1/3 as much hornwort at my fish store. The anubias were lush and full…twice what I’d get at the fish store..and much healthier! Having to pay shipping made the price about the same…but I didn’t burn gas, take time, and I got much nicer plants.

The pictures don’t do full justice, but I’ll show you what I got! You can order with confidence that you’re going to be very pleased with the value and the quality. I am!

Again, only been planted for 24hrs but seem to be doing good. Came in two HUGE clumps. Great looking plant hope it also does well.

Plant arrived in great shape and looks great in the background of my tank

Healthy firm leaves

I bought a batch of new plants for a new discus tank. This plant was amongst them and it was in great condition.

Excellent value

Excellent value for a great species. Botanically, this is the species Anubias heterophylla, though it is often listed for sale under the name A. congensis. I ordered two of these for a Congo-themed paludarium in our university's natural science lab. Both plants were large, with healthy rhizomes and beautiful leaves. Highly recommended!
