For these plants it would be preferable to use a tall tank with a lowered water level and lid on top to keep it moist inside.
Thanks hydrophyte. I've aquired several different species of Anubias at this point, but would like to come up with some of the A. nano. I also have to find some B. heudelotii. I could do a lid, but tall isn't an option for this tank due to where it is located.
