- Nano Fish
Anubias Nana is a plant that is extremely easy to grow and a great beginner plant. It does not require much attention and can be floated in the tank or attached to decorations. It's thick structure allows it to be placed even with some aggressive fish.
You will receive one portion of Anubias Nana. Usually, this will include one plant with at least 4 leaves. Portion size may vary.
Anubias nana is a rosette plant which basically means that all the leaves grow to the same size and the root system will sit toward the top of the soil or substrate. Anubias nana leaves can get as large as 5 to 8 inches. We keep anubias nana in a fare amount of our breeding tanks here at Flip Aquatics. It is an easy to grow plant that prefers to not be rooted in the substrate. We typical float the plant or attach it to a rock or a piece of Malaysian driftwood. To attach it, we use a rubber band for two weeks or so and then remove it. Anubias nana is very hardy and can tolerate many aquarium conditions. Therefore, it will make a great addition to any shrimp tank.
To propagate anubias nana, simple cut the rhizome and leave 4-5 leaves on each section. The rhizome will continue to grow and the plant will eventually thrive. Also, under good conditions anubias nana will propagate itself by sending out horizontal rhizome with additional leaves. There is a myth on the internet that if you cut the rhizome of an anubias plant that the sap will make the water toxic, this is not true. We have propagated anubias nana in shrimp tanks and have never had a problem.
