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 :)
Nice healthy- looking plants withs lots of roots and leaves. Got them before and they can survive cichlids
Came in looking great. Healthy, and doing well in the new tank!
Healthy plant first time with this one, ordered 2 looks good
I received this plant in absolutely pristine condition. I ordered 1 piece and I received 3 pieces. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
The anubias I got when I started this tank is doing well, if looking a little rough due to my incompetence. The point is that it is still alive and growing and is beautifully dark compared to many of the other plants. I don't understand why one wouldn't plant them down in the substrate where that is where the food is, but it worked. It is now semi-buried and seems happy, despite being 24" from the light. (standard double and a daylight florescent in the default fixture). I wanted another anubias. This one I tied to a little rock and placed it in the shallows. I hope the light isn't too bright for it, we'll see. I'll move it if it looks ratty. I always feel a little bad for the plants that leave Dustin's greenhouse, because he takes such great care of them and I just throw them into my low-tech tank and let nature sort them out.
