Description

 

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.

Driftwood is known to naturally release tannins into the aquarium which can stain your water color slightly yellow, similar to tea. This is natural and soft water loving species such as South American fish love this type of tannic acid. Doing several water changes and adding some activated carbon to your filter will help clear up the water. Overtime, the wood will naturally stop releasing tannins.  

 Notes:

  • Anubias are strong plants that can thrive in a variety of environments.
  • These epiphytes can be planted into substrate or attached to hardscape.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • Please be sure to remove this plant from its pot. For instructions on how to properly prep aquarium plants, click here.
