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.
and similar big, arrowhead-leaf Anubias
might do OK in an open-top setup.
really hates dry air and its leaves will brown around the edges unless you keep it in high humidity.
I can probably think of a few other suitable more or less representative plants for a West Africa-themed riparium. I'm sure that various Cyperus
occur there--there are hundreds of species in this genus all over the world--so you could incorporate some Cyperus
'Baby Tut' as a background riparium plant.

That's another plant that needs humid air to grow very well emersed. It would be better in a riparium with a closed top.
