Most aquarium hobbyists are familiar with the genus of plants named Anubias. The species in this genus are some of the most popular plants in the hobby due to their ease of care, and there are many, many varieties. The dwarf variety, Anubias barteri var. "nana," hails from Cameroon, Africa. It can be found growing in the shallows of forest rivers. Relatively new in the scene, however, is Anubias barteri var. "nana gold." Its beautiful light green to golden leaves indicate a true color variant not dependent on tank conditions. This color will not disappear as the plant ages or is propagated. Its thick, heart-shaped leaves are tough and can last several years. It can thrive in a wide range of temperatures from 68° to 86°F. This gold variety will grow in light ranges of less than a watt per gallon, but it can also thrive in high light. It can tolerate pH readings from 5.5 to 9.0 and does not require added CO2 or water column fertilization.
Anubias nana 'Wrinkled leaf' is a very rare plant. It's well sought-after for its unique wavy-shaped leaves. Anubias is a beautiful African plant which grows roundish, dark green leaves from small stems which branch from a rhizome. Its thick roots grow downward from this rhizome. It is a very slow grower and the leaves can last for several years. However, because of its slow pace, it is often prone to algae growth on the leaves. Keeping the plant shading will sometimes avoid this problem. Nana is best placed on a rock or piece of wood, using fishing line or cotton thread to hold it down. Unlike Riccia, which will not attach itself over time, Nana will become attached to the surface it is planted on. Therefore, cotton thread will work since by the time it disintegrates, the plant will be firmly secured via its own roots. It can also be laid to rest against the top of the substrate (using an aquarium safe metal weight to keep it down) so that the roots can seep into the substrate but the rhizome will stay out of the gravel. The rhizome must not be buried or it will rot away.
Anubias nana 'species' is a small, attractive plant which thrives in all conditions. It will reach 5-10 cm height. The rhizome will be 10-15 cm or more. It grows slowly, and the leaves survive for several years, giving slow-growing algae the chance to become established. The best result is achieved by planting on a stone or tree root. Fishing line can be used to attach the plant until it gains a hold. If planted on the bottom the rhizome must not be covered because it tends to rot. It flowers frequently under water. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish.
