Common Name: Anubias Nana Thick Leaf
Anubias nana “thick leaf” is a less common variation of Anubias that make a handsome foreground accent. The plant is short with small, dark green, rounded wavy leaves. These plants are hardy and will accept a wide range of water parameters, making them perfect for beginners to the hobby. This plant can be grown either submersed or emersed, and works very well in bare-bottomed tanks. Anubias nana “thick leaf” work very well with a variety of tank mates, and can survive even the most active and aggressive fish species
Anubias nana “thick leaf” 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.
The 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. A. nana “thick leaf” 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 Nana is a very hardy plant. No Co2, no gravel, and very minimal light. My Anubias Nana was attached by fluorite aquarium glue on two pieces of dragonstone. This just gave my tank a more “full” look. I also never mentioned that the thick leaf is very beautiful because of the leaves darkness. Overall all plants came very healthy, thanks BucePlant!
