Anubias Congensis (Anubias afzelii "Congensis") is an Anubias species that is becoming more well-known in the aquarium hobby due to its attractive appearance, durability, and ease of care. Its deep green, thick leaves stand out and provide valuable refuge for aquatic animals. Unlike the more "round-leaf" species, cultivars, and hybrids of its genus, it has much longer, more pointed leaves as apposed to the Anubias barteri and "Nana" Like virtually all Anubias plants, it is extremely hardy, undemanding, and can thrive in a variety of water parameters.

Care for Anubias Congensis is identical to other Anubias plants. It is best placed in the middle ground & will look its best under low to moderate lighting. Excessive lighting can result in unattractive, pesky algae growth on its leaves. However, this algae growth can easily be kept under control in an aquarium with a healthy population of shrimp (especially Amano shrimp) that will constantly graze on the algae without harming the Anubias plant itself. Most herbivorous animals will not harm Anubias Congensis whatsoever, although some biofilm/"wood-eating" Panaque genus plecos may "chew" holes in its leaves.

Like many Anubias species, this plant is slow & steady in growth and does not seem to respond to CO2 supplementation as highly as many other plants. It does best when attached to driftwood or rockwork. It can be planted in the substrate but its rhizome (roots) must not be completely buried in the substrate or it will rot and recede. It can also be planted emersed in terrariums, paludariums, and viquariums.
