Common Name: Anubias Congensis Mini
Anubias Congensis Mini variation is an excellent foreground plant for the beginning hobbyist. This attractive plant has small, dark green, oblong leaves, and while it grows slowly, once mature it proves to be a beautiful accent to almost any aquascape. Anubias Congensis mini rhizomes will attach to a rock, piece of driftwood, or other tank decoration, but they can also float or be planted. You can tie the plant down with thread or fishing line to encourage it to root in a specific spot. It is somewhat unusual to plant Anubias, but if you do make sure that the rhizomes are not buried, as this will cause them to rot. This plant can be grown either submersed or emersed, and works very well in bare-bottomed tanks.
Anubias Congensis Mini plants prefer a tank with good water circulation. Since they are slow growing they are prone to algae, especially under high light. These plants prefer low to moderate lighting. They can survive without CO2 injection, but will grow faster and larger with it. Anubias Congensis mini propagates through its rhizome system. If the plant is healthy it should produce side shoots from its rhizome that you can separate and then allow to root in your tank. You can tie down the rhizome or let it float. Eventually it will sprout into another Anubias plant. Anubias work very well with a variety of tank mates, and can survive even the most active and aggressive fish species.
