Anubias nana is a popular and hardy aquatic plant often used in freshwater aquariums. It is a member of the Araceae family and is native to West Africa, particularly Cameroon and Nigeria. Anubias nana is favored by aquarium enthusiasts for its attractive appearance and ease of care.
Key characteristics of Anubias nana:
Size: Anubias nana is a relatively small aquatic plant, with leaves typically growing to be 5-10 centimeters (2-4 inches) long.
Leaf Shape: The leaves of Anubias nana are oval or lance-shaped and are typically dark green. They have a glossy appearance, which adds to their aesthetic appeal.
Growth Habit: Anubias nana is a slow-growing plant that can thrive both submerged in water and partially above the waterline. It can be attached to rocks, driftwood, or other aquarium decorations, making it a popular choice for aquascaping.
Lighting: This plant is not demanding when it comes to lighting requirements. It can tolerate low to moderate light levels in the aquarium.
Water Parameters: Anubias nana prefers stable water conditions. It does well in a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5 and a water temperature of 72-82°F (22-28°C). It's also a good choice for aquariums with lower light levels.
Propagation: Anubias nana can be propagated through rhizome division. To do this, you can separate the plant into smaller sections, making sure each section has a healthy portion of the rhizome attached. These sections can then be attached to new surfaces in the aquarium.
Compatibility: Anubias nana is compatible with a wide range of freshwater fish and other aquatic creatures. It is also known for being relatively unpalatable to herbivorous fish, which helps it to thrive in a community aquarium.
Maintenance: This plant is low-maintenance and generally resistant to diseases and algae. However, it may benefit from occasional nutrient supplementation in the form of liquid fertilizers or root tabs.
Anubias nana is a versatile and visually appealing addition to freshwater aquariums, making it a favorite among both beginners and experienced aquarists. Its ability to grow in low-light conditions and its hardy nature make it a reliable choice for those looking to add live plants to their aquarium setup.

Was so impressed with the first order that I came back for more. After receiving my second order I can’t help to feel I’ve found a reliable source of aquatic plants for as long as I am in the hobby.
Ordered 2 anubias and got one free even though we ended up having a winter storm and delayed delivery of an I bias plant when it arrived it was thriving and beautiful in color
Took advantage of the Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale and got myself 4 beautiful anubias nanas. They were perfect for tying to my dragon stone and I love how big they were. The ones I had from PetSmart definitely do not compare to these plants.
As always APF is great to work with. Processing times were quick and the plants all arrived well-packaged and healthy. The Anubias Nana were very healthy looking, a nice dark green, and were even bigger than I hoped for!!!! I went for the B2/G1 and couldn't be happier. They have such strong root systems, too. Very pleased!
Looked beautiful and green even after shipment delay.
