Nice! I agree that a plain black background would really help the tank to pop.

Hopefully your Anubias are tied to some wood or rocks? They shouldn't have their rhizomes buried.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

The big ones on the ends came in big pots with that green foam stuff and I pretty much just stuck the entire mass about half way into the sand so the roots are burried but the. rhizomes are not buried. They are too big to tie to drift wood same with the big java ferns.

I believe it is better to remove them from the pots and the green stuff it makes it easier for the roots to begin to grow in the gravel.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

They are out of the pot and I pulled off as much green stuff as possible.

malaysian trumpet snails could do the job better than any pin or mystery snail can.
