Hi,

I have a 29 gallon tank with sand substrate. I have one anubias (don't know which variety) in there that seems to be doing well. It does grow slowly though. I am about to add about 3 more varieties of anubias to this tank and was wondering if there are any tips on how to place them.
Would 4 of these be too much for a 29 gallon tank?

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,
Ted.

No specific way to place them, however you feel looks good. It just tends to look better with the bigger variety in the back. I would never think 4 anubias is too much for a 29G. And it'll be a very very VERY long time before they outgrow that tank, in which case you can just cut the rhizomes. And Welcome to PT

Anubias are a very slow growing plant, even in higher light conditions. a few other forgiving plants to try out are water moneywort, aponegoten (commonly sold as Betta Bulbs at pet co/smart) and lotus plants.

Planted tanks are all about shrimp.

Thanks for the advice.
Does having a bubble wand in the tank help or hinder plant growth?
