Anubias nana 'petite' is the much smaller variant of it's cousin Anubias nana. It's small leaf structure and rhizome can be used to offer a sense of scale in a planted aquarium. It's lush green colouration and densely packed leaves are regularly used to create tree like structures when attached to bog wood, and can be used to create 'hillside' planting in more rocky aquascapes.
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 aquarium glue.
Anubias can be kept with any kind of aquarium lighting, enjoying either shade 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 using products such as EasyLife Easy Carbo. It will also be much more likely to thrive in a fertilized tank treated with EasyLife Profito.
