new to anubias: which species are ok for aquaria?


I am new to anubias but want to use them in my low light low tech tanks.

There are so many species and varieties, I have no idea which ones are best and my google search didn't help me very much.

Which are suitable for my tanks?

Anubias nana
Anubias broadleaf
Anubias wrinkle leaf
Anubias barteri
Anubias lancelota

Thanks so much

You will get better answers if you list the specs of your tanks: size, lighting, etc. Pictures would help as well.

Oh sorry!
10g with standard hood/light, 20g high with standard hood/light, 29g with standard hood/light.
All light is diffused with some amazon frogbit or vals stretching across the surface.
Substrate is eco-complete, I dose seachem flourish once-twice per week.

Plants would be attached to driftwood with cotton string in shadowey-diffused light areas.

It seems that some species of anubias cannot grow underwater very well, so I just wanted to check on these.

It'd be easier to tell you which ones aren't. Really only the largest species won't fare well full submerged. And by large I mean like 2' tall large.
