Gonna borrow - got some of the airline suction cups with the 90 gal tank I got for a case of beer. Great idea!

jbrady33, you are a genius. I have been trying to figure out how to mount anubias on my tank walls. So simple and cheap!

The roots won't rot hung like that? I'm a total plant newbie lol I didn't know you could do this.

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

Cool. I have 5 large Anubias plants, and always made a effort to keep the roots buried. This will definitely open up more space for me. Right on

There are a few kinds there - all from Petsmart in the tubes As long as you avoid the non-aquatic species their plants are actually pretty good. Have had great luck with their anubias and crypt wendtii green.

Any Anubias should work, none of them need/want their roots buired.
