It really doesn't matter EXACTLY which Anubia you have there, treatment is the same for all, they only one that would be bothers by not knowing the exact name is yourself
Good idea...black thread. And....funny about pushing the nose up.

I was just thinking.....from what I have seen....do the white roots show quite a bit. I know I am sounding picky. I have seen some plants stuck to DW that look very neat though. Not sure what it was I saw. Do the Anubia's "have" to be on driftwood?

Gawd my head hurts. So many names. I don't want to learn plant names. How do you know this stuff? I don't know a Luigi from a pizza maker to a plant. Ok, there is no Luigi plant. Or is there? LOL

I will buy plants by pictures because I ain't learning all their freaking names. I'm not real good with names. Numbers I can remember and do quite well. Can we get a plant numbering system? Anyone? Hello Greek plant namers. Numbers please

@Holly...yea like a weekly trimming...replanting to other tanks...yea it sure keeps ya busy They'd prop "survive" being buried, but for how long I can't tell you, never tested it, I sometimes stuck mine in the tank just like that when I bought new one's and didn't have time then and there but that would have only been few days.

@Eric I don't buy here as you know lol but there's good pictures on here, just copy in the first name i listed and you'll see it...alternatively just click on my 55g latest pictures at the end lol Aquarium Plants
Well being married to one of these geeks that think's in 1's & 0's all day and me having done finance I'm pretty well with numbers....fish & plant name easily stick in my brains too somehow, donno why...but peoples names....let's just say i'm not good at all with that, each time we moved I can ask my neighbor over & ver again "Uhm sorry what was your name again"....people's names just don't wanna stick with me...maybe plants & fish to me is what's your guys car....if I was to say '69 Mustang GT you'd instantly know what I'm talking bout

I'm sure you can do that if that's what you'd wanna do that's why I like sweetquatics, good quality & fair prices and free shipping after a certain amount.
