Off the top of my head, I'd say anubias coffeefolia, but, you might want someone elses opinion.

I'm not convinced that's coffeefolia, which should be more deeply ribbed with new leaves that are yellow. I think that's just A. barteri var. nana. Those leaves are more ruffled than ribbed.

That's coffeefolia. The leaves aren't dark green becuase they are either new growth or lacking in iron. I've got Nana that's doing the same thing in one tank of my Angel Fish tanks.

I think I agree with 2la, here. Anubias nana can have some pretty deep ridges, but coffeefolia not only has ridges but rounded arcs cross-sectioning the areas between the ridges. Not 100% sure, but I think yours is a nana.

It is true, A.nana has smooth leaves; not ruffled. Unless it's some type of variant species.. :?

Raul, it has not been doin too well, but just recently its started to grow, basicly i have just changed 1 of my bulbs (it was about 1 year old and very dull, aqua-glow 40w) now i have added a 40w power-glow. You see most of my plants slowed right down, but now things are lookin on the up . Also my Lilaeopsis brasiliensis has picked up once more. Sorry if i was goin off topic.

No problem, Raul. This situation is not cut-and-dry. A. barteri var. nana and especially A. barteri var. barteri can indeed have ruffled leaves, as my personal experience and Sam's photo attest. Likewise, A. coffeefolia can have substandard rippling, which is entirely possible in Pete's case. The reason I don't think it's coffeefolia--and I of course might be completely wrong about this--is that coffeefolia leaves tend to exhibit a deep, dark green within the ribs and a lighter green, almost nutrient-deprived appearing color between the ribs (again, see Sam's excellent photo). The difference in color in Pete's photo appears to be more of a light-and-shadow effect rather than intrinsic to the leaf. Notice also the thicker and very distinctly pink- and maroon-tinged petioles native to coffeefolia but conspicuously absent in Pete's plant.
