See the leaves climbing up the tank on the left side of the pic below? They are actually several little anubias plants from Petsmart - the rhizomes are clipped into suction cup airline clips :) have been there for months, seem to like it ok and are growing fine





from the side:

Great, steal away! :)

The stems of the Anubias at petsmart are just the perfect size for the suction cup clips - and they are easy to pop off, re-arrange and clean behind.

It is one plant that is very nice and healthy at the chain stores - several varieties too. Would be cheaper if you got a bunch at once from the sale room though

don't know if the brand matters, these were right of the hook at petsmart, just pushed them on good and hard (the suction cup, not the plants) Haven't had one come lose, and it has been over 2 months so far. I guess they aren't really holding much either, so it works!

me too, one of my favorite plants - I have a good sized nana attached to the driftwood in the middle of the tank (hard to see as it is green on green, but right behind the lowest platy) and a coffeefolia right of that in the crotch of 2 branches. I mis-treated the coffeefolia when I first got it and didn't have a clue (the old leaves have holes in them), but it has recovered nicely and is putting out new leaves now.

You should love my tank, it's filled with anubias on driftwoods !

My anubias got hurt when i moved the tank, they have been hit by the sun directly when transported in my car. Leaves melted and got dry. But it recovered well after trimming damaged leaves.
