Anubias Nancon Bare Root LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Anubias Nancon: (Anubias barteri "Nana" Anubias afzelii "Congensis") is an Anubias hybrid that was developed by aquarist Bob Gasser and has been cultivated in nurseries. It has relatively long & pointed leaves as well as compact growth, which is distinctive for this variety. Like virtually all Anubias plants, it is extremely hardy, undemanding, and can thrive in a variety of water parameters.
Care for Anubias Nancon is identical to other Anubias plants. It is best placed in the midground or background and 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 or Short Nose Shrimp), snails, and/or algae-eating fish that will constantly graze on the algae without harming the Anubias plant itself. Most herbivorous animals will not harm Anubias Nancon whatsoever, although some bio-fim/"wood-eating" Panaque genus plecos may "chew" holes in its leaves. Like many Anubias species, this plants is slow and steady in growth and does not seem to respond significantly to CO2 supplementation. It thrives best when attached to driftwood or rockwork. It can be planted in the substrate but its rhizome roots must not be buried in the substrate or it will rot & recede. It can also be planted emersed in terrariums, paludariums, and viquariums.
