Look at the size of the roots, etc.. lol what should I do with it?
Replant it some how? leave it be?

I don't really mind it.. just wanted to be sure I wasn't hurting it by leaving it alone.
It's growing great... :)

Ok.. so it finally pushed itself free and is now floating at the top of my tank lol..
Is it ok to cut the long roots down a little so I can replant/re-attach to something?

Thanks Laura - I trimmed the roots a little bit and tied it to a rock.. we'll see how this plays out..

It will be defiant forever! You should just give it to me ^_~
Lol I have a lot of anubias with varying root lengths from vertually non to monstrous. I tie each to a glass bead using low poundage clear fishingline and bury the bead in the substrate and leave the rhiszome and roots up, if it wants to it will push roots down into the sand, if not, the bead keeps it from floating ^^ Tieing to rocks, driftwood, or other decor also works. How deep is your substrate?
