About Me

  1. .....when you wake up and one of your anubias flowers open
  2. I've got a great big beautiful anubias that has been in the tank for several years but now is growing to tall for my 75 gallon tank. The rhizome of the plant has tripled or more in size since getting it, now 6 inches, with lots of large healthy leaves. Stems are growing more then 24 inches long and pushing against the lid of the tank and the leaves are very large, size of a large man's hand, and so they block a lot of light. If I didn't have a lid on the tank the newest leaves would be close to 6 inches above the water line and the length of the stem, leaf to the rhizome, would be close to 30 inches. I can't go with a open top so I'm thinking I either get rid of the the plant or I try chopping it back and see what happens. Before I did either I thought I'd see if the community has any suggestions? Thank you!
  3. Hey everyone! in my betta tank I have a wonderful peice of dirftwood. This wonerful pecie of driftwood also has lots of crevises to shimmy different rhizome species into. I have moved all my anubias from different tank and added them to the driftwood. Currently that makes it 4 anubias species on this driftwood. But I want more plants that are not anubias for this peice of wood. I was thinking some bucephalandra green wavy and godzilla, but there so expensive. I'm also planning on getting some java moss but that wont be for the next little while. So what are your suggestions for more plants? Ideally these plants would have some redish to them like the buce.
  4. It was waving that thin appendage around on my finger and in the air. I was. Creeped out by it to say the least.
  5. Hi guys, i have attached my water parameters to get a closer look at calcium etc etc. Living in the UK means i cannot get hold of easy green. I have been dosing TNC Lite and Flourish (Flourish for the Calcium, Magnesium and Iron) The only plants i stock are Java ferns and a few different anubias (oh and a tiger lotus which seems to be the only plants surviving) . Please bare in mind that the camera is making the plants look much healthier than what they look like in person. I do not use co2, my lights (LED) 8are on for 8 hours per day. Any help is greatly appreciated as i am slowly loosing interest in plants as a result of my many failed attempts.
  6. Hi folks 👋🏻 I'm Julia, nice to join your CARE community! This will be a journal of my fish-keeping journey in Canada. Having a weak memory I need a place to keep track of my mistakes (and hopefully successes in future) and forum seems to be a nicer, safer place than Facebook group. Will start documenting my first *stressful* month into the hobby tomorrow and share my story 🐟
  7. I've got a peice of drift wood that is standing straight up. Will golden anubias grow if I glue it to that vertical surface?
  8. First planted aquarium. I clearly didn't buy enough plants for the 60. Got some rocks I found along the road for decor. (tested safe) Hoping they all survive. Got some dwarf baby tears and water sprite coming soon. Anubias will be planted in an easy planter.
  9. HI I have some questions about propagating anubias(I'm not sure what type). . is there anything I can do to encourage it to grow faster? . will the roots grow back if I cut them? . is there anything I should do to prevent infections in the cut area?
  10. I have an anubias that seems to come uprooted by the smallest things. Just today I moved some driftwood and it floated up without even being touched. It is not in a pot. Is there any way to keep this from happening? I am setting up the tank to hold corydoras and am certain they will constantly dig the anubias up constantly if I can't change this.
  11. Hello everyone, I just stopped by a LFS for some more plants and came upon a plant they seem to think it’s in the Anubias family that looks like an Amazon sword? I ended up purchasing it because I was intrigued like I said it kinda looks like a sword but with thicker anubias feeling leaves. Anyone have an ideas on type/ name?? I’ll take a picture once I have a chance. Thank you in advance!!
  12. My fiancé has seen the light! I’m getting rid of the sofa to make room for a 75gal. I want to upgrade/expand my current cichlid setup and want to add live plants. I know I’m somewhat limited due to cichlid habits and pH, but understand it can be done. Inspire and educate me! I’m a visual person, so would love to see your photos.
  13. My anubias bloomed!! Looks great. It was a big surprise. Now I wonder, what should I do? Will it produce seeds? How to collect them and use them? What triggered the bloom? Is that a good sign? As you can see, I do have some black beard algae. I'm going to try some of the fish that Aquarium Co-op suggests to eat that off. Unfortunately most of those fish can't be found here in Clarksville, Tenn. I would post a picture, but I don't have an URL... it's on my harddrive.
  14. New tank. Zero ammonia, nitrite, nitrate. Just 2 fishes: oscar + pleco. Help is much appreciated. Thanks!
  15. I had a tank where hair algae took off. Using a timer and cutting back hours of light really helped. I manually removed the hair algae from the plants. But it wants to grow back, like it has roots attached to the plants. Stem plants I may have to snip off more to eradicate it but I hate to have to cut leaves off the Anubias. What can I do that won’t damage the leaves?
  16. My plant surprised me with a flower today. Should I leave it growing or is it like other plants I grow where I cut off the flower for the longevity of the plant?
  17. I am turning over a 5-gal tank to become a pea puffer tank. I recently added (about a week ago) 2 anubias plants, a Golden one and a large one (I don't remember the exact type) from aquarium co-op. They have sence been disintegrating and all of the leaves are falling off. I know plants often don't transfer well from being land grown to water grown, but I have also read a little bit about anubias rot and it seems to be similar to that. Any ideas on what is wrong with my plant and how I can help them? Fish note: The disintegrating plants has caused the nitrite levels in my tank to increase so I have been unable to get my pea puffer, and my tank currently has no plants. Photo note: I have put some of the leaves from the plant back into the soil, but don't expect the to live. I also added a photo of my overall tank for reference.
  18. I got this plant from the Coop a few months ago and it's really doing well. I can't get a good picture of it because the fry basket is in the way, but it's got really lovely round leaves and the danios like the cover it provides.
  19. I work 10 hours/ day. So typically, my aquarium lights are on 14-16 hours a day. Right now it's mostly on white LED light while I am away, then I switch it bluish LED light when I get home. My plants are are most Anubias and Java Ferns and a few moderate to high light requiring plants. I read that too strong a light will actually be bad for Anubias and Java ferns. For the 14 or so hours that I am away from home, which would be better for the plants- the white LED lights or the bluish LED lights? Thank you.
  20. I have two anubias plants in my 20 gallon. My anubias nana (kind of shown in upper right of picture) looks great. This anubias looks like the rhizome is dying. It's either an anubias congensis or frazeri anubias (I forget which one, I planted both but one died a week in). I've had this in my aquarium for about a month now. All other plants look great (java ferns, Amazon sword, hornwort, stem plants) but this one has begun going downhill. I dose two pumps of Easy Green every week. Am I doing something wrong? Should I pull it so it doesn't do something bad to my other plants? Thank you.
  21. Our nitrates in both 20 gallon and 55 are 40-80 ppm nitrates. We have lots of algae in both tanks and our plants look bad, I can try to take some photos after I get home from work. I really want to save what plants I can.
  22. This is coming from my Anubias golden coin. I am not sure if it is a flower or what. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  23. Clockwise from top: Abubias barteri, Cryptocoryne wendtii, Anubias golden. All soaking in alum solution now. The anubias should make it okay but I'm a tad concerned about the crypt - we shall see! The C. barteri's leaves are really hefty - I love it!!
  24. I have a anubias but I can’t identify what type it is and I would like to get more. It is roughly 4 inches wide and has amid of lighter and darker green leaves
  25. Just messing around with my lights and taking random pictures. I fell in love with this one. Sorry for the poor quality. Cell phone camera. I really need to get a decent camera if anyone has any suggestions.
