Heterophylla meaning 'different leaf' is the perfect descriptor for this unusual variant of the Anubias family.  Anubias is usually a squat plant with roundish leaves but this variant offer striking long stems and thin long leaves. Another striking feature of this plant is it's slight variegated leaf pattern offering a striking contrast to a wave of green in a planted aquarium.

 Anubias is a slow growing plant at the best of times but is a staple in many tropical fish keepers aquariums due to it's easy to keep nature. This plant should be secured to a rock, piece of drift wood, or ornament using fishing wire, alternatively use an aquarium glue such as ISTA Instant Glue.

Anubias can be kept with any kind of aquarium lighting, enjoying either shaded or direct light. This plant is susceptible to algal growth due to its flat leaves, these leaves should preferably be cut off to encourage new leaf growth but may be gently cleaned off.

Anubias must be kept in a tropical aquarium, this means it should be kept in aquariums between 21°C and 30°C. In lower temperatures it may survive but you will struggle to get any significant growth.

Like all aquarium plants, Anubias will benefit from CO2 injection or liquid CO2. It will also be much more likely to thrive in a fertilized tank treated with EasyLife Profito.
