question about anubias
Ok, so I was at the pet store earlier this afternoon to pick up some more flake food, when I saw the rack of plants in the plastic tubes. I was checking them out and one of them, the Anubias nana, is the only one that looks really healthy. All of the leaves are green without any signs of damage or discoloring. So on impulse I bought it since I've been wanting to get some new plants anyway.
My questions are what kind of requirements do these plants have? I plan on putting them in my 10 gallon betta tank. I have two 50 watt lights that are on for approximately six hours a day (sometimes it's closer to seven). The ammonia and nitrites are 0, the last time I checked (one week ago) the nitrates were at 10ppm, and the ph is 7.6. Is this compatible with my water specs? Do I need to put one or two root tabs in the gravel near the plant like I do with my Amazon Swords? Any input would be great and very much appreciated.
