Anubias Petite Live Plant Bunched
The genus Anubias contains several species and varieties. Anubias barteri has the popular varieties caladifolia and nana. These are defined by variations in leaf shape and appearance. Caring methods for each are very similar.
Anubias petite are small-leaved plants which produce roots in the form of a creeping rhizome. They thrive when attached to rocks, driftwood or other decorations. Its is not recommended to bury the roots and rhizome in substrate. Anubias will sometimes flower above the water line, and leaves may develop a coating of algae if overly fertilised. Because of its thick, leathery leaves, Anubias is ideal for cichlids or other species that may not usually be suited to planted aquariums.

Please note: whilst every effort is made to prevent or remove snails and snail eggs, we do not use copper treatments in our systems (because copper is also harmful to shrimp) so cannot absolutely guarantee snail-free. If you are concerned about snails, we recommended that you dip your plants in a snail preventative solution, such as Esha Gastropex, prior to adding to your aquarium. We do not recommend buying treated plants, or administering copper or anti-snail treatments if you have shrimp in your aquarium. Snails are perfectly safe in an aquarium and will not harm your fish.
